Unexpected Uses For Your Favorite Jewelry-making Findings

When I first started learning how to bead, I ordered jewelry findings — lots of jewelry findings. I ordered clasps, cones, spacers bars, eye pins, head pins, jump rings of all types and shapes and sizes, cord and ribbon ends, and lots and lots of other jewelry-making findings that I had never heard of before. As I strung dozens of beaded necklaces and bracelets and assembled earrings for craft shows and farmer's markets, I started looking for ways to use those findings to make my jewelry stand out from the rest of the jewelry sellers. When I discovered how to use end cones as dangles for a beaded gemstone necklace, I was hooked on finding new uses for my favorite jewelry-making findings!
