Tips for beginners ...
Let your inspiration and confidence do you have the choice of colors. Light is essential, therefore I recommend to work in the morning, when natural light is best. For your convenience, buy a box with small compartments. This allows you to sort beads by color. To choose colors, place the beads next to each other before putting them on because they reflect them. This allows to realize if harmony is successful. Work on a white surface, to bring out the different colors. Do not overlook the finish: choose the well-calibrated and well finished. Start and finish the ring to a place where you will not see the node, that is to say in the body of the jewel. Finally, once the wire cut off and if the little bit that exceeds even picnic, go over a small tip clearcoat.
