 Metals can be used in the form of rings, chains, and wires.  Your personal taste can determine the type of metal to use.  Soft metal can bend easily and is best for creating loops. You can use either copper or gold for this purpose.  Stone or gemstone can also be used in making your jewelry.  Bear in mind that stone is more expensive than many of the other materials.  You can save money by using false stone.

The other materials to prepare are chains, clasps, beads, gems. Bear in mind the various types of clasps; they are highlighted below:
