The things in this section are mostly metal and glass components, which are incorporated into jewelry items. Findings are the structure upon which ornamentation is glued, soldered or fused. The ornamentation can be fused glass, gems, beads, insects, pebbles -- whatever items you deem "ornamental," and are lightweight enough to do the job. Findings include jump rings, ear wires, tie bars, and bails, to name a few.
Don't let anyone accuse you of having a drab jewelry box. Using some of our accoutrements, you can create stained glass boxes and things fit for even the most solemn of ceremonial occasions. Mr. R. G. "Tiger" Euphrates of Klamath Falls, Kansas writes: "This addition to your Gimcrack line has come along at just the right time to breathe life into an otherwise humdrum jewelry box season. Keep up the good work!" (Thank you, Tiger!)

Each package contains from 3 to 8 flowers, depending upon their size.
