Jewelry findings may not be as glamorous or beautiful as the other components of a piece of jewelry, but they are an integral part of the whole. After all, you cannot wear an earring without the post to put it in your ear and you can't wear a bracelet without a clasp. They are basically the parts that make your piece of jewelry wearable.

The term "jewelry findings" covers things like earring posts, earring hooks, barrette backs, pin backs, spacers, clasps, and more. There are some decorative findings available, but for the most part they are simple and utilitarian and are usually gold-plated or silver-plated.

Finding Jewelry Findings

So where can you find these jewelry findings? Most online bead shops sell findings along with their selection of beads and other beading supplies. Stay away from online shops that force you to buy a certain amount. The best online shops offer discounts when you buy your findings in bulk, but do not force you to do so.

For instance, you save a lot of money when you buy ten earring posts instead of one and you save even more when you buy 100 earring posts. If you know you are going to be making a lot of jewelry, this is your best way to save money and get the supplies you need. No matter what kind and how many findings you need, I'm sure you'll find what you need online.
