FEATURED SUPPLIER! – Cinnamon Jewellery Findings

This shop might look a little familiar but there is a difference, here you have the opportunity to buy Cinnamon Jewellery’s findings to use in your own pieces.

Items are made by hand, with a great deal of care and attention, the copper is oxidised with liver of sulphur to give an antique appearance or you can stick with the copper’s natural brightness.

There is definitely a lack of handmade copper findings in the UK so luckily someone has decided to do something about it!

JEWELLERY MAKERS TIPS! – Try something different – Chainmaille!

With the longer days of summer why not expand on your jewellery making skills?

Chainmaille dates all the way back to the Middle Ages when in addition to providing protection it became a thing of beauty too.

The list of different weaves and effects is huge. With exotic names like “Viperscale” and “Elven Rope” to the less Lord of the Rings “Jelly Beans on Parade”

Many shops and jewellery makers run classes, book one for the summer and enter a whole new world of jewellery making.

I recently purchased some copper findings from Cinnamon Findings and they really are beautiful and well made. I was extremely impressed … almost seems a shame to use them ;o)
