“Need Your Advice...Please :)”
Description from Breezy Chick aka Bree: I would really appreciate some advice. I've been looking at designs on line and being a total beginner I have many questions on how these designs come together.
1. Jump rings... what is the difference/purpose of opened or closed jump rings?
2. Connectors... if I were to use connectors as a focal point in a necklace, how would I keep the necklace from looking scrappy with all the crimps everywhere holding the connectors in place or is there some other way? (same question for the jump rings).
3. Leather....I love the look of necklaces that have the precious stones/metals at the front/centre of the necklace and the back half is leather thong. Would you use a jump ring to connect the string of beads to the leather and how do you make this look tidy? Also what kind of crimps would you use on leather?
4. Sterling Silver....I want to use sterling silver beads & findings in my pieces... does anybody recommend a site that sells sterling silver beads and findings? Would love to get my hands on some sterling silver cones also... any recommendations?
Thats it for now, I'm sure there will be more questions to come. Thanks for taking the time to read all my questions. :-) Hope they make sense.
