I apologize if the question has been asked before in the past, but I did review the board as best I could before posting and didn't find anything.

Does anyone have a source -- preferably Canadian -- for plastic findings for earrings? I can't wear metal in my ears, and I have bought a few pairs of plastic ones that finally allow me to be fashionable and non-itchy and in pain! Yay for me! But I'd like to make my own. I am new to all of this jewellery making stuff (and bow down before the goddesses on this board!) and wonder if someone could direct me to somewhere I can find plastic earring findings. I am in Canada, so I would prefer that, but I'll take any suggestions!

Thanks in advance! My non-bleeding, not sore ears will appreciate it greatly!

Thank you so much! This is exactly what I needed! I really appreciate that you took the time to post this. I shall be able to wear earrings again! (Now I just have to figure out how to attach the polymer clay sushi bits I made to the earrings and I'm set for life!)

Thank you again, KitschKitty! I ordered the parts and now I'm trying to figure out how to use them (see post for this!) I am drooling over the catalogue they sent me, and my fiance is worrying about our budget as I take up yet another crafty project! I really appreciate that you took the time to share this information!

 Grin  Hello!  I'm new here and just read your post about trying to find plastic findings to make your own earrings.  I have the same problem as you - can't wear metal in my ears........did you get any kind of answer that led to you finding a supplier that carried plastic (nylon) ear findings?

Years ago I found them at Fire Mountain Gems.........but now they no longer carry them! Roll Eyes Kiss Cry  I haven't had any success trying to find a replacement source and was hoping that you had been successful and perhaps you could share that information with me.  I"d greatly appreciate it!!!
