1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Sources for vintage owl beads and vintage stacking flower beads? on: October 08, 2007 12:17:12 AM
Hey!  Does anyone know of any reasonably priced sources for the vintage stacking flower charms and owl beads?  I see a few people on Ebay and Etsy selling them, but they can get pretty pricey.  Here's a pic of the flower beads I'm talking about:

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Help finding links to wholesale kitschy/vintage plastic beads, buttons, or charm on: September 01, 2007 11:55:09 AM
Hey!  I've been buying some supplies to make some jewelry off etsy.com here and there but am having trouble keeping the cost down.  I'd like to find a link to where I could find stackable plastic flowers, plastic charms, vintage looking owl beads.  They seem to be everywhere on etsy, but the suppliers selling them can be a bit pricey sometimes.  Are these vintage remakes with a wholesale supplier or are they really rare to find?  I've googled, I've looked up sources in backs of magazines, and looked on ebay, but still can't seem find the original source for these types of items.  If anyone had any links or sources that they know of that they wouldn't mind sharing, that'd be super duper!

here's a pick of the elusive owl beads (i bought these off etsy and made some earrings)
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Need help with jewelry making glues on: August 15, 2007 11:35:00 PM
Hey! I'm new to craftster.  This is a really great site.  Lately I've been making some simple earrings with buttons and posts and the only glue I've found to use to where the fumes won't make me pass out is super glue.  I've also been trying my hand at making some button brooches (a craft idea I saw in Adorn magazine).  They suggested using E6000.  It works great for holding the buttons together but I can't get past the smell.  I even tried airing out the brooches I made and I still smelled the fumes even days later.  Does anyone know of a glue that is as strong and has the same consistency of E6000 but doesn't have that same toxic smell?  Also, I wanted to try to make some fabric covered button brooches and adorn them with some embellished buttons but I'm not sure what glue to use.  Has anyone else tried to make these?  http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd20/warholp89/orangebuttonpin.jpg

Thanks!  Wink
