2. Cut the piece approximately 5/8 longer than needed, that extra length will make the loop that your leather rope will go through to hang the pendant when finished. Now grind that extra length to an even thickness, approximately 1/16 thick, so it will bend easily to form the loop. If it is too wide you can grind some off of the width before you bend the loop. With a fine file, smooth the edges of the ground metal so that it will not mar the leather and will slide easily on the cord.
3. Some people dont like the concept of paying the entire amount in one go. This is why people dont make wholesale their choice. You need to pay for the entire bulk at once, while you collect your order. This does bring in huge profits, but a lot of people find it as a disadvantage.
Your jewelry making supplies, especially beads, come in all shapes and sizes, so, you cannot ignore that. A medium sized beads strand would fit finely in a tiny storage box. Larger size of beads strand can also fit, but it mainly depends how you store it. These boxes can easily come out, so you dont always have to pick out from them. Saves you a lot of time and nothing mixes up!
✢ Gold-plated jewelry has a thin coating of gold over the base metal, whereas vermeil comparatively has a thicker layer of gold over its base metal, sterling silver (thickness of gold plating less than 2.5 microns is considered as gold-plated jewelry.)
