Where do I begin ? I want to start making my own jewelry and hair accessories and could use some help with how to proceed.

There are many options open for a person who would like to start making jewelry or accessories. Many of the larger craft stores or craft departments in department stores like Michael's, Ben Franklin, Wal-Mart, K-Mart have on-going craft classes where you can learn basic skills. Bead stores frequently offer classes, and many of them carry hand tools and other findings for making jewelry, and many of the hand skills required for making beaded jewelry are also used in making barrettes and other types of jewelry.

Another option to explore is the local Community College or High School Adult Education Department. Art Departments frequently offer classes for adults on many different skill levels. Don't discount other colleges in your area. For instance, Rhode Island School of Design holds many non-credit courses for adult learners.

Another resource is MJSA (Manufacturing Jewelers and Suppliers of America), which is an organization of the jewelry industry, and they are very aware of where a person can go to learn jewelry making.
