Here's how I did it, not sure if this is the most efficient, but I leveled up rather quickly. I picked up every piece of jewelry I found along the way (I also picked up glass or ebony weapons/armor). I also filled as many soul gems as I could along the
way, esp grand and black. Then when it was time to enchant, I used the best soul gems I had available on the best piece of jewelry and I found the enchantment that was worth the most gold. I seem to remember archery was quite high. I just worked my way
down from best jewelry and best soul gem to worst, until one or the other ran out.
The basic concept is that the most additional value you add, the more progress you make to the next level.
Hopefully someone else can give you more specific details on the best items to use.
Make sure to go to the Mages stones to increase your leveling. If you want you can hope right across the river from there to Ansie's Cabin and she has an Enchantment table in her basement. She'll attack you when you leave but she isn't needed for anything.

I don't think this is right. This is true for Alchemy, but I didn't notice this being the case with Enchanting. It's basically just a grind, so lots of Soul Gems + lots of items to enchant = success.
I was curious about this so I went back to an old save. You are absolutely right, whether I used a 1500 gold ebony battleaxe or a 30 gold orcish dagger AND either a grand soul gem or a petty soul gem AND the highest enchantment or the smallest enchantment
- in all situations my enchanting level went up the same amount. I reloaded my save between each attempt.
So lots of petty soul gems and iron daggers is the cheapest way to go apparently.
I actually have been going into Enchanting with this character for lack of anything else to go into. It is actually a lot of fun to start making really powerful items. I doubt I can make anything more efficient than the Archmage Robes, though. They don't
look that great but they are awesome for Mages.
