Color pictures of models offer ideas and inspiration for personalization and creativity.

Findings for Embroiderers

Eye pins, head pins, jump rings and such are commonly associated with jewelry making and beading. I find they come in handy with embroidery, too, and I use them to make embroidered jewelry, accessories, bookmarks, and doo-dads. Learning how to work with them opens the door to all sorts of interesting and functional finished products.

Tools

Learn about craft pliers that make working with jewelry findings easier.

Findings

Check out some of the findings that are available along with how, when, and why to use them. We talk about clasps, shepherds' hooks, eyepins and headpins, split rings and jump rings, swivel hooks and lanyard hooks, crimp tubes, ear wires, swivels, and craft wire.
