Findings Worth Finding: Contemporary Pewter Findings

If you like bold, graphic findings for your jewelry designs, check out these new pewter designs that have recently come onto the market. I found these hammered-style pewter toggles, rings, and links at Art Beads. These high quality items are made from lead free pewter in the USA and come in 3 shiny finishes: bright gold, rhodium (silver), and copper, which are plated heavily onto the pewter surfaces. The styles are very clean and geometric, and would go well with many types of handcrafted beads like lampwork glass, ceramic, and polymer, for a contemporary look that doesn't detract from the beads with too much fussy detail and ornament. The whole line of links, rings and clasps co-ordinate together perfectly for endless design possibilities.
