whenever I get new wire, I make sure to place a piece of duct tape around it to hold it wound while having a tag that I can write the metal and hardness. That way, I am not finding random wire and trying to guess what it is later on.
Thanks for the wire labeling tip Lisa. The worst thing is to reach for a spool of wire, and have no idea of the size. I am also curious to hear ideas on storing spools of wire. I bet there are some great ideas out there, waiting to be shared.
Jewelry is fun! I make jewelry all the time when I am free from my work. It is so instantly gratifying. I'd say, go to the library and find out a lot of books, you may realize nice ideas and techniques. My recommendation would be to sketch out what you want would like to create before you are doing and make certain that everything is powerful and one thing that you just would want to wear.
Hi Susan - Jewelry Making. I have a passion for making and wearing jewelries and fashion accessories and get start my own store in 2012 to share my passion with our customers. Sorry, but i d't understand "storage techniques".
I keep my wire displayed on a thread rack beside my work space, placed by size and color. I have my tools in a multi pouched canvas bucket set on a Lazy Susan that is wooden and has multiple sections cut into it's perimeter. The bucket sets in the center and is easily spun to select needed pliers etc. my beads are grouped into small five drawer bins bought at WM by color, and my silver,gold and copper findings are housed in separate containers in a larger three drawer storage container to the side of my workspace, all within arms reach which prevents getting up and down.
