2018 Winter Collection is now Live on our Website!
As technology becomes more incorporated in all that we do, the trends of our day-to-day life are reflected in the trends of fashion and accessories.
There is some push back to this fast paced technology driven world with consumers desiring artisan goods that reflect the “handmade” movement of small batch production and unique offerings. The 2018 Winter Collection was inspired by this trend in jewelry.
Many of the models created in the 2018 Winter Collection’s release were hand crafted by myself. First I worked with clay to construct models in just the right size, width and shape that would work fluently with the other findings within our product mix. We then cast the models in lead-free pewter and plated them in copper, 24k gold and .999 fine silver. The pieces have an organic hand forged look by design. We hope that you will like creating with this newest collection of findings as much as we have.
Over the past weeks, we have been providing “sneak peeks” of the new release on our blog. Here is a recap of some of the latest and greatest from Nunn Design.
1. Drop Charms!
Findings that provide an elongated simple accent are all the rage in fashion accessories. I personally love designing with these new drops because they bring the balance of length when I’m creating a necklace that has a cluster of accents as the focal piece. Yet, these Organic Drops are a perfect stand alone charm and don’t require anything else for them to really make a statement. Cast in lead-free pewter, drops are then plated in copper, 24k gold and .999 fine silver and sold in bulk packs of 10. All of this greatness is done in the USA.

2. Hammered Moon & Cross Charms
The new Hammered Crescent Moon Charm and Hammered Traditional Cross were quick to be Team Nunn favorites. Both charms are cast in lead-free pewter and plated in copper, 24k gold and .999 fine silver. The Hammered Crescent Moon Charms are plated to be metal stamped or engraved upon. Sold in bulk packs of 10 pieces per plate. Made in the USA.
3. Organic Hoops
The models for Organic Hoops, both Large and Grande, were created by hand and intentionally not cleaned or “machined” so they would have the look of an organic handmade finding. What I’ve loved about creating with the Organic Hoops is the diversity of how I could use them. They were enough to just stand alone as a charm, or they could be used as a toggle ring or connector. Cast in lead-free pewter and plated copper, 24k gold and .999 fine silver. Sold in bulk packs of 10 pieces per plate. Made in the USA.
4. Organic Flat Tags
The Organic Flat Tags are cast in lead-free pewter and are plated to be engraved and metal stamped using copper, 24k gold and .999 fine silver. The models for these flat tags were formed by hand so they have a real handmade look and irregular surface. Both the Organic Tag Large Circle and Grande Circle are sold in bulk packs of 5 pieces per plate. Made in the USA.
5. Earwires and Wire Frames
Here is a collection of findings that aren’t a surprise to our upcoming 2018 Winter Collection. All of these findings were part of a past Flash Sale that we offered. These additions to our earwire findings were selected to put in our everyday stocking Nunn Design findings line based on your feedback to us.
6. Open Back Bezels and Preciosa Crystals
The organic styled Open Back Bezels are designed to work with Preciosa Crystals, Swarovski Crystals, stones and cabochons. As with most Nunn Design Findings, they could also be used with Nunn Design Resin, Crystal Clay, or polymer clay! All the Open Back Bezels are cast in lead-free pewter and plated with copper, 24k gold and .999 fine silver. Cast and plated in the USA, each style of bezel is sold in bulk packs of 10 pieces per plate. To learn about the glue that works best with the crystals, take a look at this blog post: Glueing Crystal to Metal.
Preciosa Crystals are also available in companion sizes for the open back bezels. An 8mm circle, a 14mm pear, and a 12mm square cushion stone.
