I've started to make jewelry also, almost a year and a half ago. It can be harder than it looks. I'm not selling it as of yet, just learning the techniques and materials.
I used to be crazy about gold, but now I'm more into stones. One of the fun parts of making jewelry is discovering the stones...there's a tremendous range of stones on the market, all levels of price and quality. You can find some really nice quality stones for a very reasonable price.
Peridot, citrine, turquoise, tourmaline, pearls...these are my favorites.
