There are many techniques for making jewelry using a jewelry making jig. Most of these techniques can be termed by the name wire wrapping. This name for making jewelry by hand refers to the fact that instead of using solder or glue, wire components using this approach are connected to one another using the same techniques developed prior to the Middle Ages of wrapping wire around itself to permanently fix a loop in wire and to connect wire components.
Techniques for wire wrapping that are commonly used today can be seen in Roman jewelry and in Egyptian jewelry dated to 6 and 7 AD. While the wire used at that time was not modern wire, the techniques to use that wire are still valid today. At present,jewellery manufacturers these ancient techniques have been improved on through the use of modern materials and jewelry making jigs with removable pegs.

Hemp and other twines have been used as well to create jewellery that has more of a natural feel. However, any inclusion of lead or lead solder will cause an English Assay office (the building which gives English jewellery its stamp of approval, the Hallmark) to destroy the piece.[citation needed]
Beads are frequently used in jewellery.tahitian pearl These may be made of glass, gemstones, metal, wood, shells, clay and polymer clay. Beaded jewellery commonly encompasses necklaces, bracelets, earrings, belts and rings. Beads may be large or small; the smallest type of beads used are known as seed beads, these are the beads used for the "woven" style of beaded jewellery. Another use of seed beads is an embroidery technique where seed beads are sewn onto fabric backings to create broad collar neck pieces and beaded bracelets. Bead embroidery, a popular type of handwork during the Victorian era, is enjoying a renaissance in modern jewellery making. Beading,golden south sea pearl or beadwork, is also very popular in many African cultures.
