It’s an individual choice to select the design if you are a beginner go for the simplest ones, try a pattern that is easy to work. I like making micro jewellery; my design inspiration is nature.
Buying the Threads.
Cotton Threads that very fine are prefered in micro crochet, easy to handle and gives a good grip.
Embroidery thread is put in use by many for making tiny flowers.
Few prefer the fine silk threads that are used for sewing.
One should keep in mind “finner the thread the better is the output”.
Using finner Hooks.
Prefered hook size is less than 1.0mm, the smaller the hook size the finer the stitch. Steel hooks with rubber cover give better finishing along with a good grip.
Working in bright light
Work station should have adequate light; this helps in crocheting and focusing on working without stressing the eyes.
Investing in a magnifier glass.
A magnifying lens is always handy and helpful. For beginners, it is not mandatory until you want to start something seriously in micro crochet.

For perfect working use small and sharp, working with large ones can temper the workings.
Another frequently used tool is the needle. The use of a suitable needle is important to give the final finishing touch.
