Last week a friend of mine asked me to make some earrings for her daughter as a Christmas gift. Her tween loves sparkle, so I'm loading up on the Swarovski crystals. To give the earrings an extra-special finishing touch, I've been searching for some handmade findings.
If you've only used commercial findings in your jewelry, you are in for a treat. One of the fun parts of working on my book Unexpected Findings was seeing the range of beautiful handmade findings that bead artists are creating today.
I created an Etsy treasury to share a few of my favorites. I apologize in advance to any bead artists I left out. Please leave a comment on this post if you sell handmade findings so we can all check out your shop!
