Hi all! Long time no post!

I have searched high and low, and am now turning to fellow Craftsters for help! I taking my first stab at jewelry making- the only thing I need to make my new necklaces complete? I need veined leaf pinch bails, just like the ones pictured here:

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_7Js6mOjdl1Y/SmfbXheKPFI/AAAAAAAACJQ/g2mwDJ8tJko/s1600/dsk%2Beki5.jpg

I love how you can't see the loop where the chain runs (since the leaf acts as the loop)- I think it really adds an organic quality to the necklace. I also love how the leaf looks a bit curvy in shape, as well. I've found other leaf pinch bails, but they look chincy in comparison, or they have that loop on top the leaf which I don't want (see picture below.)



I would be eternally grateful to you if you could share your jewelry wisdom with me! I have exhausted Google and don't know where else to look. If there's a catalog you know about that supplies these, I'd love to know which one. Thank you!!

BTW, if you haven't heard of DSK Jewelry, you should go check out her stuff here: http://www.dskjewelry.blogspot.com/ Her jewelry is incredibly beautiful and I'd love to buy some of her pieces, but they're out of my measly graduate student budget, and they seem simple enough that I decided to make my own versions (for myself, never for sale.) Enjoy, and thanks again!

These also have a loop. http://www.artbeads.com/isbl-0001.html?cmp=googlebase&zmam=24751123&zmas=1&zmac=2&zmap=ISBL-0001

I dont think the loop looks bad.. its so small that its really not a big deal.. Although i do understand the reason you don't want one.. it just looks so perfect without one.

I found these, which aren't too bad:

But you're right, there are alot of chincy ones out there.
