  • Tassels and gift bags

    Hi guys, I can't find what I'm looking for exactly, so wondered if anyone could help me?

    I'm trying to find a wholsesaler/supplier of tassels. I'd like to get something very similar to those you often see on Chinese-style coin charms/pendants, as I've just finished sculpting a little Chinese dragon and when he's cast up in pewter I'd love to add a tassel to complete the look. The problem I'm having is in finding tassels that aren't made of chain or aren't furnishing-type tassels, I've tried searching online and I must be doing something wrong because that's all I keep coming up with. And my bookmarked wholesalers don't appear to have anything like that in stock.

    Second question
    I'm also on the lookout for pretty, reasonably priced gift bags - not organza! - that I can use for my jewellery. The reason I'm asking here is because I'd rather not buy from China, I would really prefer to keep all my purchasing within the UK and support UK businesses, if I can. Besides that, it's certainly easier to rectify mistakes with a UK-based company!
    Ideally I'd like a choice of sizes, colours and materials, preferably satin or velvet, and for my Chinese themed stuff, little oriental bags would be lovely if I can get them. Drawstring bags would be ideal. I could make them myself but it will take ages and TBH, I doubt I could make them cheaper than a supplier.

    Thanks in advance

    Have you tried card supplier for the tassels not sure about wholesale but they should be about the right size. Also I just got some velvet bags off eBay sorry can't remember the supplier but if you take a look there are a lot on there.

        Are these any good for the tassels? http://www.very.co.uk/yellow-and-whi...RS-_-Z7468-_-Y They do other colours too.
        Otherwise if you have the time or inclination you could make one yourself http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ra2qbqISwsM
        As for the bags there are some nice velvet bags here http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Jewel-Mania...=p4634.c0.m322 I have ordered from them before and have been very pleased with their service and quality.

            Wow - you guys worked out a great price! What year are you celebrating? Do you mind sharing some of your details? I'm currently on the committee for our 15 year reunion this summer. We're having a hard time finding anything decent for less than $50/person!
