You will recognize the Primitive Flat Tags from a Flash Sale we offered this past fall. The Primitive Flat Tags are currently live on our website and available for purchase. The other two items, the Metal Bead Faceted Elongated Drop and the Earring Post Flat Pads and Earring Butterfly Clutches will be releasing January 5th, 2017. Here is the skinny on all the newest additions to the Nunn Design Finding Collection.
Primitive Flat Tags
The handmade movement is not going to slow down. Consumers want to be more connected to the things that they own and how they adorn their bodies. Consumers want to know or feel like they know the artist that is creating their jewelry.
This consumer awareness was the inspiration behind creating the Primitive Flat Tag Collection. I sculpted these flat tags by hand to give them an earthy natural handmade look and feel. On the backside, I created a flat and smooth surface, allowing these pieces to have a dual purpose. Maybe you will use these tags for metal stamping on the front and create in resin or clay on the backside. Or, let them be a stand-alone accent. They are a perfect little charm as is!
Primitive Flat Tags are cast in lead-free pewter and are plated copper, 24k gold and .999 silver. Here are the 4 new Primitive Flat Tags that were added to the collection. Made in the USA.

Primitive Tag Small Oval

Metal Bead Faceted Elongated Drop
This lovely faceted drop came from my vintage stash. I use to have a flapper dress that had a fringe of drops like this. I was delighted to see how the black glass bead cast in pewter. I love the look, but love even more designing with them. I always seem to want the length that this bead provides when designing. Again, it is a great stand alone charm too!
Cast in lead-free pewter and then plated copper, 24k gold and .999 silver. The dimensions for this beauty are 37.2 x 6.7mm. The hole size is 1.8mm and is perfect for our 1.5mm leather cord. Made in the USA.
Earring Post Flat Pad & Earring Butterfly Clutches Surgical Steel
I needed these Earring Posts Pads and Butterfly clutches for my pieces that I created with the new Open Hoops! They are perfect for gluing onto a flat surface and creating fun little earrings. We choose not to plate these surgical steel findings for all of you nickel-free earring lovers!
The Earring Post Flat Pads are 6mm in diameter and have a post length of 10mm. The Earring Clutch Butterfly is 5mm in diameter. Made in the USA.
