Hello

Can anyone advise me on where to purchase pendant findings to make necklaces such as these:

http://www.etsy.com/au/listing/126880824/clear-crystal-quartz-double-point?ref=sr_gallery_22&ga_search_query=pendant+crystal+point&ga_order=most_relevant&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=AU&ga_all=1&ga_search_type=all&ga_facet=pendant+crystal+point

I've tried searching Google (using all kinds of search terms) to find them without success...

Thanks

Fire Mountain Gems and Beads sells them (I found them searching by gemstone points), I've also seen them in many shops that sell incense and things like that if you don't want to shop online.

I work with crystals also, and have often wondered the same thing. I've bought a point with that type of finding once, & took it apart just to see how it works. They gouged a line in the crystal to fit it snugly, and glued it down. I don't know if that's something they can even sell  to jewelry artists like ourselves, seeing as there are so many variants to it. (size of crystal, width, length, size of the finding, design of the finding ect). Plus to me it seems like you would have to cut the crystal yourself, and apply and the soder the finding on, and coat it with glue. ugh. I hate using glue on my jewelry I very rarely ever do, it takes away from the properties of the crystal I think.
