Findings are a very important part of jewelry making.. down the line, we do manage to make or alter findings to make our creations more personal.
I use handmade ear wires and also Cold Porcelain beads, spacers etc..
But it is also true , that I keep collecting a lot of findings whenever I can ..er...find them ...!!!!
Sometimes, the findings are so nice, that they become the highlights of the piece.
I found some flower shaped findings with an antique gold finish .. they were big enough to make into earrings.. and I just did not feel like adding any beads to them...
