Whether you want to own your own business or work for someone else, doing what you love is essential.
If you enjoy making jewelry or think it might be something you could enjoy then learning the craft or
making this hobby more serious could be just for you. People love making jewelry and here's why...

While many people think of jewelry as just fashion accessories, they are much more than just
adornments. Jewelry marks significant moments in people's lives – some blissful and some sad
, but all beautiful moments and a specific piece of jewelry can envoke a particular memory and even
take you back to a specific country, a particular time of your life or certain event or remind you of a
special person.
Art is self-expression
Jewelry is art that you can wear – it's not just something that has to be hung on a wall somewhere. It is
something you can wear as a personal artistic expression. Making it is an outlet for self-expression and
allows you to pour your heart and soul into each jewelry design, and in turn, the people you are making
jewelry can express themselves through your designs too.

Gemstones heal
Whether you believe in crystal healing or not, you can still appreciate how beautiful a gemstone is and
how it can make you feel instantly good? Gemstones all have their individual meaning, and it's so
interesting to learn about. There is a meditative state which you get into with creativity, like an altered
form of consciousness where you get so absorbed in the creation of what you're doing that the rest of
the world disappears.
Make people happy
Everyone loves receiving jewelry, it can be such a personal gift, whether it’s a beaded bracelet or
Tacori Diamond Cuts rings, people remember where every piece of their jewelry came from because
they remember feeling touched receiving or buying it. Jewelry is always the perfect gift, whether you're
celebrating an event or person.
Jewelry is forever
Every so often, people load their car with bags full of clothes and shoes to donate, but does anyone
ever have precious jewelry pieces in those bags? Jewelry truly lasts for more than a lifetime while
clothing and shoes suffer damages and trends. The wear-and-tear of jewelry make the jewelry more
meaningful and on their way to heirloom status as they get passed onto future generations. Jewelry
is forever.

Jewelry making is genuinely the journey of a lifetime. You can spend your entire life experimenting with
different tools, different techniques – there are so many different things to explore. You can do all kinds
of different things and never make the same thing twice. And every time you sit down at your table, it's
just as fresh and exciting as the very first time you picked up a pair of pliers! Not only is it fun, but you
can wear what you make, and you can't say that about painting, baking or woodworking.

So are you ready to try it, but don't know where to start? When it comes to making jewelry, the number
of possibilities can be overwhelming. So focus on one kind and go from there. Then you'll need to
master a few necessary skills as most projects require the knowledge of how to form a simple wire
loop and open and close a jump ring properly. Once you learn these essential skills, you can use them
for all different kinds of projects. If you think you're going to get into this hobby then invest in good-
quality tools as the better your jewelry-making tools are, the easier the process will be and the better
your project will turn out.

You should also create a dedicated workspace for yourself that you can devote to your hobby,
somewhere you can organize your supplies and label everything. There is a vast variety of
jewelry-making storage ideas such as bins and boxes that come with dividers to easily store beads.

Next, if there is something specific you want to learn, you should take an online class where an experienced instructor can walk you through the process! You could either take a basic beginner level class or find a course which specializes in specific technique like working with resin or wire wrapping. Finally, don't hesitate to try a particular skill because it sounds complicated. Don't limit yourself to a specific color, style, or size of jewelry. Play around with all of your supplies, try out new things and see if you like them. Experiment with all the different materials and see what happens. The sky's the limit: Reach for it!
