              PJ's worth a look

              Hi I recommend PJ Minerals, which I think is now called PJ Beads - so that's probably what alot of others are recommending! They're good because they do bulk discounts and there's no minimum spend!

                I believe Fred Alduos sell the brass rings.

                    International craft are also cheap if you want basic settings and findings.

                        Good quality findings


                        I am fairly new to jewellery making. I take the point about silver findings. But when I don't want silver or gold (and as I make jewellery to sell for charity I try to keep my costs down) where can I get good quality, even if it costs just a bit more?

                        It's just that, especially with clasps, I have found that sometimes what looks like a bargain isn't because you have to throw loads of them away because they are faulty.

                        Maybe the sites mentioned above are good quality as well as good prices, but I'd value some advice.

                          Burhouse beads (in Yorkshire) are pretty good too

                            I'll second Burhouse Beads. Just got a mailshot from them yesterday and they got a whole new range of plated findings in "because of the rising cost of sterling silver". I was there a couple of weeks ago and they were just sorting them out so will check them out next time I visit.

                            They don't have a minimum order value but there is a £3 handling fee for orders under £25. I think you can ring up and request a free catalogue - if its not free its worth the money cos its huge and they have allsorts in it.

                            One problem with Burhouse is that they are a trade only supplier and they ask for proof of your business - usually a couple of invoices from other suppliers is enough.
