Take it easy!
Our first piece of advice? Don’t be afraid to start small. Buy a basic kit of jewelry components off Amazon and choose a type of jewelry that is made out of less than 3 parts. It could be simple earrings or a stone pendant.
Try to make one piece and if it goes well, challenge yourself to complete a couple more of these projects within a short time frame.
That way, you’ll get the hang of the techniques involved and be able to move on to more complicated projects with confidence.
