  • Velour Cords and Leaf Bails

    Evening all

    I am having some trouble finding leaf bails at a decent price. I need the ones that you glue onto the back of pendants and earrings, not the ones that fold over, I can find those most places. The only ones I can find are £1 for a pair of them and thats silver plated.

    Also when I was at a craft show a month or two ago I bought some velour necklaces at £1 each which was a little bit more than I wanted to pay but they are really nice. Ive been onto their website but they are now selling them at £1.25, does anybody know where else I can get them?

    I'm sorry to ask all the questions but I'm going round in circles trying to find them

    Hi Rhiannon.

    We've been having the same trouble looking for decent sterling bails at affordable prices. In the end we ordered some sterling silver sheet metal from Palmers, that we ordered pre-cut to size and then made our own aaranku style bails.

    As for the velour necklaces - can you post a pic or a link so that we can see what it is your wanting.

      I am looking fo silver plated leaf bails but I did think that £1 for a pair was rather steep, maybe its just me!

        OMG! £1.25 each!

        They would work out at around 20p each (maybe less) to make them yourself but obviously if you were buying lots of colours to make your own or making small quantities, then you'd probably be costing it about double that (this is only an estimate).

        Have you looked on ebay. The chinese sellers have loads of different cords and stuff and they often work out at less than 20p each if you buy in quantity. That's where we get ours from for the stall but we do also make them when someone wants a different length.

          If I could make them for 50p i'd be very happy with that! Just had a look on ebay but all the velour cords are flat, not round ones in the colours I would like.

          Where can I get the cord from to make them myself? Sorry to keep asking questions.

            Just did a quick search and found them ready made from a UK ebay seller cost £10 inc p&P for 20 black velvet cords

            http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VELVET-String-...d=p3286.c0.m14

            or if you wanna buy in bulk and don't mind waiting a couple of weeks for delivery you can get 100 from a chinese seller for about the same price.

            http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/100pcs-round-b...3286.m63.l1177

            Hope this helps.

              Thanks for that link - megacheap! Though we'll see if what I've bought actually arrives, of course...

                  Thank you all for the links. I have emailed one of the ebay sellers to see if they do other colours and they do, but only in red, blue and brown, otherwise he has to buy 1000pcs of each of the other colours! I know I certainly won't need that many.

                  I have been round every haberdashery/place selling cord in Lincoln and no one sells the velvet cord either by the metre or ready made. I have looked in trade catalogues at work - no luck. I then sent my mum round Louth to have a look and she has managed to find some, not sure if it is exactly what I want but I only have to wait until lunch to find out. I can't find the cord per metre on the internet either, I have searched every keyword I can think of in search engines and I can only find the flat stuff not the round.

                  The leaf bails were easier, thank you annoble, I will be buying them from warm glass.

                  Sorry for the long post but I just can't believe that it is so hard to get hold of!

                    Well, my order from CordAndBead arrived today! For a total of £55, I got :

                    100pcs round black velvet necklace cord with lobster 2mm
                    100pcs real black leather necklace cord with lobster 2mm
                    100pc black suede leather bar necklace cord with lobster
                    100m black round real leather jewelry cord 1.5mm
                    100m black round real leather jewelry cord 2mm

                    And that adds up to a bargain in my mind, at 11p a cord/metre! All arrived safely, the made-up cords are all around 18" long and nicely made, and I even got a free gift thrown in - a few assorted extra necklace cords.
