Hi! I have never attempted to make any kind of jewelry before, but i am going to try to make nautical rope bracelets. I need to get some of the findings(?) like the ones on this bracelet, but i dont know what they are called, so i dont even know how to search for them. I checked my local craft shop, but they didnt have anything that was close. I appreciate your help!

What I am seeing are ribbon clamps/ribbon crimp ends:

Various lengths of chains/extenders:

Lobster clasps

and some kind of tag or charm.


Most bead stores should have all the supplies you need and can probably help you with how to put it all together

Hi, I have used these before and for the life of me cannot think of what they are called, but I am sure if you have a Michaels, Hobby Lobby, A. C. Moore, Jo Ann Fabrics and either take the picture showing the finding or describe it to a person who works in the jewelry area, you will find them.  I believe they come packaged.  Hope this helps you.
