1  Looking for base metal bezel cups with rings or bails attached. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by Hermione on: October 27, 2006 06:52:13 PM
Anyone know where I can find base metal (read: cheap) bezel cups/closed-in-the-back pendant holders with rings or bails attached? Like, metal pendant blanks? I want to make pendants filled with resin, like this one I made last week:

The specific brand I normally use is made by Sulyn (http://www.sulyn.com) (The bail doesn't come with it, but you can see it has a ring on top.) My local source for these is constantly out of stock, and the only online source I've found sells them for $3.99 each. Which is ridiculous, since my local store's cost is $1.49.

I prefer silver tone, but at this point I'm willing to try anything!

2  Bunch of Gemstone Necklaces (img heavy) in Beads: Completed Projects by Hermione on: April 15, 2006 07:55:15 PM
While I'm here, I thought I'd also post a few more of the necklaces I've made in the last few weeks. I tend to get completely obsessed with one type of craft for several weeks at a time, and then move on to something new. The cycle repeats over and over. The good thing about it is each time I have one of these obsessions, I buy lots of tools (special pliers, for example). So each time I come back to something I never have to buy that sort of thing. Anyway.

Some of these don't really show what the whole piece looks like. That's because I photographed them to make a record of what the stone was, and not to show off the jewelry.

Garnet & clear glass:

Mayflower jasper:

Mookite Jasper:

Rutilated quartz:


Dumortierite (looks black in the photo, but is actually dark blue):

Prehnite (the black inside is probably tourmaline):

Jet & clear quartz:

...And these are just the ones with gemstones. In that last month or so I've made about 30 necklaces with "regular" beads, too! This is why I still live with my parents - I spend my entire paycheck on supplies...

3  Gemstone Bead Pendants in Beads: Completed Projects by Hermione on: April 15, 2006 07:27:03 PM
I made some pendants today with a bunch of gemstone beads. Some of these beads can be pretty expensive so rather than spending $20+ on a strand, I like to buy one or two single beads and make pendants. I have a million of these using all sorts of different stones.

Green garnet, silver wire:

Carnelian, copper wire:

Dolomite, silver wire:

Chrysocolla, copper wire:

You like? My favorite is the last one. I also really like the heavy copper wire on the carnelian one - it's the first time I've used such a thick gauge.

Okay, I don't want to ruin any surprises in case my partner hasn't gotten hers yet. But here's a preview.

As for what that image is part of, you'll have to wait and see. Wink
