Hi,

I am looking for a good website where I can buy creative pieces to incorporate into the bracelets I make. All the sites I go to seem to just have simple everyday gems, beads, and charms. I am looking for pieces that will help my bracelets stand out. I looking more so for metal pieces and gems. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Kelly

I love delishbeads.myshopify.com but they mostly have plastic beads and things.

When in doubt, use more glue!

Make your own!

Get a blowtorch (preferably a turbo-torch or similar), a stainless steel ladle or crucible, and a bucket of water.

Get some low melting point metal, for experimentation I would suggest a silver bearing solder or aluminum.

Melt it in the ladle using the torch, pour it in the bucket of water from various heights and take a look at the forms that you get out of it. Some are really nifty.
This is what I do to store various casting metals (copper, bronze, brass, tin, zinc, etc etc etc.)

About.com has another article on it and there are various youtube videos you can take a look at as well, click this for a google search that may interest you.

*NOTE: THIS SUGGESTS YOU PLAY WITH FIRE AND EXPLOSIVE GASSES, USE YOUR BRAIN AND GET SOME ADVICE ON SAFETY BEFORE PROCEEDING.

That is the coolest thing I've seen a long while! I would never have thought of using globs of metal as pendants/focal beads!!!
