Basic tools for the amateur jeweler
As a jewelery manufacturer, one of our most common decisions is whether or not to buy more tools. If so, which one? Often the choice of "Should You Buy Another Device Or More Materials To Buy"? For those who are relatively new to jewelry making, this is a particularly scary issue and can be costly without proper guidance
. tools, materials and instructions. This trinity is the basis for developing any skill or skill. Knowing that we all need to start how we know what, what, when and why? We can buy tools infinitely and we never have all of them.
I think it is better to buy fewer tools and more materials. This is not just the wisest approach to long-term development; this is also the best investment strategy for getting started.
There are not really many tools available to make handmade jewelry. Most aspiring jewelry manufacturers buy more tolls than they need. They are often encouraged by tool makers and manufacturers to have a certain jewelery tool. They can also be influenced by those who have more tools than they know what to do and definitely more than they need.
So where do I start? First, we need to understand what we want to do. Suppose we want to learn how to make jewelry directly with metal. The best starting point with solid knowledge is forging, shaping, bending, sawing, piercing, announcement and cold building. Only these techniques alone enable us to make infinite jewelry. It is certainly enough to develop and refine our skills and learn our material.
If you are just beginning to discover metals, you don't know what techniques you want. Purchasing a number of special tools will financially limit you to a particular technique before deciding whether you like it. I suggest you start with the minimum tools and purchase additional tools if you decide to continue. This is especially true of the tools used to make handmade rings .
There is a saying that you should always buy the best tool you can afford. This is good advice, but not in every situation. I recommend good quality for certain items, especially the pliers, but sometimes enough to get started. Buying economical tools, if acceptable, allows you to buy some extra products, invest in more materials, or pay for education.
