So many ideas for making jewelry - how do we catch those visions in our mind's eye and turn them into 3-dimensional, wearable pieces of jewelry?

Many people who make jewelry do not have a formal education in jewelry making, but with the right tools and jewelry making parts, they are able to create beautiful objects and jewelry designs. In addition to jewelry findings, filigrees, charms, beads, hand tools, and the like, another useful tool in jewelry making is the vast array of jewelry making books. Some jewelry books offer step-by-step instruction with detailed illustrations, some offer jewelry making kits with instructions, and some are books of jewelry photographs providing inspiration and style direction.
