Sorry for the awful pic. Couldn't get the autofocus on my camera to work.

I have this old pair of earrings that I really like.  I've started making earrings of my own, so I want to know where I can get more of the long rectangular pendant thingies (descriptive, I know).  Does anyone know of an online store that sells something similar?  Or maybe if there's a special name for them--I don't really know what to search for. I've been trying "silver rectangle pendant" with no results.

As you can see, it's a little rectangular bar, silver in color and with a swirly pattern stamped on it.  It's about an inch and a half long.

Enough yammering, here's the pic:


Thanks for any help you can provide!

You may find it difficult to find something identical to this. No idea if they are out there or not but I've not seen anything quite like it. However, there is a happy and generally inexpensive solution - make your own out of strips of polymer clay Cheesy You can roll out a sheet, stamp it to get the texture and cut it into strips as long or short as you want.

If you want real silver, there is a more expensive solution known as Precious Metal Clay, which can be fired with a torch or gas hob but costs a lot more than poly clay Cheesy

Try searching for links.  The piece you have does look like it is either painted clay (like fimo) or PMC with a roller or sheet stamping on it.  Hill Tribe silver has similar details but will be on the pricey side in comparison to clay links.

I don't know if this appeals or not, but if you search for rectangle shaped glass instead of silver you could find hundreds of options.

you could also use a large gauge patterned wire-drill a hole in each end--but the wide patterened wire is fairly expensive in sterling or fine silver
