Pins – Pins always include headpins and eye pins. Headpins are used to build blocks in projects such as my snowman earrings, bauble rings, and more.

Strings are always necessary for bracelet and necklace making. Choose if you prefer strung beads, and then pick a wire. If you prefer pieces that can look “real” and sophisticated, use chain. If your style is more trendy and colorful, go for cords.
Wires – These are used for threading beads. Which you’ll need will depend on what type of project you’re making. The aluminum wires and copper wires can be used to form different shapes to make your craft outstanding.
Chains – They are used to string a pendant, or as spacers between beads on a necklace, bracelet, earrings… You can also use it as a main decorative element in the piece itself.
