1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Deseperate for Antique Brass findings!!! on: October 30, 2007 04:43:53 PM
Thanks Goldy...I've gone loony trying to find a place other than an Etsy that I can get some good Antique Brass findings. I think I finally found sonething!!


There is a great brand out there called Vintaj Natural Brass Co. that has amazing products on thier site (their site specifically deals only in wholesale so you need a tax ID number or certificate of business to order direct) or you can purchase through a few retailers across the US via online and walk in...all of that is listed on thier site. They have an assortment of beautiful charms and Filigrees that you guys might be interested in.

There is also this place:


They sell "custom" charms, customized to your chosen finish with a wild assortment of possibilities including logos!

I was hoping someone could give me some info on a good place to get bulk Antique Brass findings, specifically toggles.

I'm in the process of getting my website off the ground and I want to be prepared to accommodate large (bulk) orders for my chains, but Antique Brass findings are really hard to track down! I've come across some great Etsys that have good selections but I need to be able to purchase more than a set of 6 at a time. Any names for good online resources you could give me would be much appreciated... Smiley

I totally dig this! Soldering is on my list of things to learn within the next couple of months.

Great looking tee, hun  Smiley

This has been my issue as well. I tried making myself a halter a little earilier today and ended up throwing the thing in the garbage and spitting at it because it totally was working against my schnoobs.

This gives me some hope...keep 'em coming annrkey  Cheesy

Yes, Nest...i'd love to see your file if you had some extra time to send it my way. My email is belinda@madrid.com. Thanks!!

Princessblueberry, thanks for the tip! i think whatever i end up doing this will still be used.

Noodle Princess, this is sounding right up my alley...i like the idea that he'll be able to pull the recipe he needs as needed instead of worrying about making the binder itself splatterproof. Hmm, i might even be able to adjust some straps to the binder itself that allows the front and back piese to be propped open enough to "stand" that way the recipe itself might be attached to easily see while being used.

Thank you ladies...I'm lovin' the brainstorm!! Cheesy

I'm looking to put together a rad recipe book for my 19 year old brother as a b-day gift (i have a decent amount of time but i'm preparing early). I was hoping some of you might have some ideas on what i could do. My only stipulation is that it can't be made of any fancy schmancy leather as i have no clue how to work in that medium otherwise i'm open.

Any ideas ya'll could throw my way would be greatly appreciated guys!!  Wink

i'm absolutely loving that lil hillbilly one. I need to get some more of these, btw...i searched my collection and all i seem to have is the Miss Kitty and the little teapot day of the week patterns.

I have a good one...Comic/ cartoon/ coloring book stitchalongs!

These days i've been throwing around ideas for some new cool designs and i seem to have come up with a few nifty ones via cartoon network and, if you can belive it, Archie comics.

I'm just about done with a Jughead pillowcase and i'm thinking maybe something from Mucha Lucha as soon as i can.

oh awesome, this is something he'll treasure forever. I honestly see it as an art: some use brushes and paint or pen and ink...we all use the needle and thread.

Another good idea that i've been hip to for a while, my being a big cartoon nerd and all, is coloring books...they make excellent patterns. That might also be a cool avenue for the lil guy.

Beautiful work, hun!

i've played with the idea of making one for Paul Reubens and possibly sending it to him...goofy, i know, but so am i  Cheesy

I think you rocked this work with a vengeance!! keep em coming!
