Jewelry Making Basics



Hey, Hey,

Have you seen all of the infographics on Pinterest lately? If not, they are basically a visual guide to learning something. They are perfect for me because as you could probably guess I am a visual learner. I have found myself pinning a lot of them lately.



At the same time, I have been designing loads of jewelry. My jewelry designs require pretty basic skills to put together. I had an ah ha moment and realised I should make some infographics for the basics.




I made them for you so you could print them out and hang them on your studio wall or you could pin them on one of your Pinterest boards. Either way they are pretty little reminders of the basics.



This one is going to be my new computer wallpaper, because when I am ordering beads online I NEVER have it in my head how big beads are in millimeters.


I made it so if you click on the image, it will enlarge and you can print it on a single piece of paper. Plus if you're reading this at my blog, you can run your mouse over the top for a pin it button.


Enjoy!

  4. Great infographics!
    I'm not a native English speaker and I was wondering whether a charm is the same as a pendant or if a charm is only for bracelets?

  9. This is very useful. I just started getting into jewelry making, myself. My grandmother always made me necklaces and such when I was younger, and I loved having something the other kids didn't. I started getting interested in using fancy-colored diamonds. I hope I can use them in a way that still looks rustic and vintage (my favorite kinds of jewelry to wear). Thanks for this guide! I'll definitely be referring to it. =)
