METAL CLAY AND JEWELLERY MAKING TOOLS

This can be anything from a drinking straw to a professional jewellery tumbler. Take a look around at the things you use everyday. A toothpaste cap or the bristles of an old toothbrush might give you just the pattern you are after.  A cookie cutter might give you a perfect earring shape. The tiny drinking straw from the juice box might be spot on for making holes to hang a piece from. An old nail file can be excellent for cleaning up a piece prior to firing. A toothpick or a needle can be perfect for modelling and shaping clay (just look at Carol Douglas' stunning little creatures - they're all done with needles and toothpicks!). Point is, you don't have to spend a fortune on tools to get started with metal clay. 

Having said that, we must not be the only tool addicts here...there is something very addictive about jewellery making tools!
