Round-nosed pliers: Okay, these you wont find in your husbands tackle box. They are made just for jewelry makers, and like the name indicates, the tips of these are round. They are used for making loops or curling pieces of wire. Get a good pair of these, preferably one with a spring in the handle.
Flat-nosed pliers: These are your basic pair of pliers with a flat nose, but the difference with those made for jewelry making versus those you might find in your garage is that these are smooth on the inside of the nose.
Wire cutters: While you are going to be beading mostly and not working with wire so much, you still need a good pair of flush cut wire cutters to cut things like headpins (used to make earrings) or beading wire (a flexible coated metal wire).
Scissors: Small scissors like those used in sewing are handy to cut thread.
Glue: A little dab will do you, but its handy to have some jewelers glue. Hypo-cement is one brand many jewelry makers use.
