I am absolutely new to this, I have not tried to do it at all but I would really like to try something small to see if it is something I can get into. I have all the tools needed because of past jobs that required similar tools. I would just like some tips, advice, patters, etc. on this to dip my toe into this. I do not want to just dive in and buy way to much and it turns out that I dont care for it.

Thanks for you time

There are lots of chains in the weave section that wont be as much time to construct. You can search weaves by chain and many link to tutorials on the weave page. I would start with chains that only use one ring size. Depending on your strengh and eyesight 0.062" 0.048" & 0.040" wire gauges are good sizes to start with.

I am new as well - just jumped in with both feet and for the most part am having a lot of fun! Pendants are easy, small things to start with and get the feel for a new weave too. Instant gratification!
