No matter what type of jewelry making you do, lighting and proper vision are keys to professional jewelry results. Often overlooked because let's face it, lights and magnifiers aren't nearly as exciting as brand new wire or sheet metal, seeing clearly is beyond important. The most common complaint about jewelry from my fave gallery is jewelry coming apart. The clasps, jump rings and links aren't completely closed up tightly. Usually it's not seen by the naked eye but over time wearing the piece, something comes apart. Especially if jump rings aren't tightly closed.
