What Materials and Components are used?
We string bracelets primarily on 1 mm stretchy elastic and finish with a triple knot or on soft beading wire with a clasp. Necklaces are strung on soft beading wire with clasp, Clasps range from simple base metal of $3 to Sterling Silver $20.
Do you offer Clip-on backs?
We also offer any earring you see with clip-on backs. We can use gold and silver plated clip-on earring findings for no extra charge. If you require 14K gold clip-on, I will find the most economical price for you on the Internet and charge you at cost. Typical sterling silver clip-on findings add $15 to the pierced earring price.
What types of clasps do you have?
We have toggle clasps, lobster claw, box clasps and magnetic clasps. They are primarily in base metal – silver, gold tone or copper. We do have sterling silver and some 14k gold-filled.
What types of ear wires to you have?
We have mostly french wires and lever backs all in Sterling Silver or 14k gold filled. We also have some posts – sterling silver and 14k gold filled, 5 or 6 mm balls. We don’t have flat to the ear post capability.
What is the Jewelry Pricing?
Our prices are very reasonable. Pricing starts at as little as $15 for glass/resin earrings on French wires, book markers, key chains, glass/resin/ceramic stretchy bracelets and boxed sets of 4 wine glass charms.
Ranging from $30 to $60 we offer stretchy bracelets made from glass beads or ceramics – like Kazuri beads from women in Nairobi. Necklaces average $60 to $150 depending on beads used – Murano or others from around the world – and length.
Sam Black Original lampwork bead earrings are $50 on sterling silver ear wires, bracelets are $85 on stretchy elastic and necklaces with sterling silver clasps are $150 to $325.
If you want real 14K gold findings, I can purchase them and simply add it straight to the cost of the design with no markup.
