My girlfriend has started to get into the craft/hobby of making handmade jewellery, specifically earrings. She has been doing this for about a year now and is quite interested in it. She is completely self taught and I must admit, fairly good.
She has some of the basic tools, a small selection of material (beads) and the basic techniques. She would like to advance and learn more. She checked into any classes, etc in our local area for this and there are none. She has a birthday coming up in the coming months and I would like to get her some stuff related to this hobby.
If anyone has ANY suggestions of resources that I might be able to look into for this (and possibly a gift), that would be appreciated. Again, she is only interested in earrings and not getting into making rings, chain mail, etc, or other types of jewellery. I am looking for books, resources, guides, websites, message boards/forums, supplier lists for beads, etc...
Any assistance would be helpful. Thanks.
