There are three types of crew skills: crafting like artifice, gathering and mission. crafting skills require materials from gathering and mission skills in order to craft the item you want.

In the case of artifice, you want to have archeology and treasure hunting as the skills to feed your artifice crafting.

Now if you are a Free to Play (FTP) player then you are only allowed one crew skill. What this means is that you will have to buy materials with credits from other players. This is usually done through the Galactic Trade Market (AKA GTN or GTM). the GTN is located at fleet.

However, as this is probably your first character, you will most likely not have the funds to buy materials from other players (they can be VERY expensive due to lack of supply or high demand or both).

if you are a FTP player my suggestion would be to abandon artifice and take up a gathering or mission skill instead.

If you are a subscriber you should have the option to get two more crew skills go get archeology and treasure hunting.
