Forum: Jewelry Making Materials

Hi everyone—I’m new to jewelry making and am looking for some advice on the best tools and materials I should use for my project.

I have some pieces of coral that I brought home from various travels and I would like to make a simple necklace with the piece of coral horizontal across the neck, some sort of gold paint/leaf on each end of the coral piece and then to attach to the chain I was envisioning a small corkscrew that I could insert into the ends of each side to connect the coral to the chain.

What kind of materials and techniques should I be wary of or use to make this? I guess my biggest concern is that I break the coral…

Any thoughts much appreciated
