My New Line of Handmade Jewelry Components

I love creating jewelry! And so do a lot of other people. So I thought I’d try my hand at selling some handmade jewelry components.

I’ve been stringing sequins for various projects for the last 10 years. At a Bead Society Show and Tell, a member passed around a vintage Miriam Haskell necklace. It was black, the material moving with a strange fluidity. When I examined it, I found that it was black sequins strung to create a totally unique piece of jewelry. I went home and started stringing necklaces. I’ve also used them to make memory wire bracelets and the components I’m offering for sale now.

These connectors are about an inch and a half long and they’re perfect for earrings and chains. I’m sure you can come up with lots more inventive ideas, too!

The “sequins” in this set are actually recycled red record albums from back in the day!

I’m also going to be selling chainmaille components suitable for use as connectors for earrings and other jewelry, plus keyrings or purse jewels. Whatever your imagination can come up with!

I’m selling these in pairs, but if you need more for a project, let me know and I’ll see what I have on hand. I’m also open to giving a good deal on bigger orders.
