- Take a look at our “Toggle Bar & Rings Cheatsheet” to see how all of the findings play nicely with one another.

- Created from solid brass, these imported lobster clasps are plated in the USA using imported precious metals. Copper, 24k gold and .999 silver.

Hook & Eye Clasps
These are one of those findings that I really didn’t “get”, but once we added them to the line I soon found myself using them over and over again!
- The 16 gauge brass wire and forming for the Hook & Eye Clasps is done in the USA. Although the brass wire is imported, we are able to state that these are all made in the USA due to the steps required to alter the brass during the manufacturing process.
- Once the wire is formed, Hook & Eyes are cleaned and plated in the USA with precious imported metals; Copper, 24k gold and .999 silver.
- Nunn Design Buttons are created in the USA with imported lead-free pewter.
- Embedded into the pewter casting is a brass button shank, providing for a strong and durable button.
- After casting, buttons are cleaned and plated in the USA with precious imported metals. Copper, 24k gold and .999 silver.
- Next, the buttons are quality controlled, the findings are counted and packaged into easy to purchase quantities.

We know that you have a lot of choices when it comes to finishing your jewelry projects. A lot of these findings are commodities and are easily available. More than likely you could find less expensive import items, but we stand behind the findings that we offer. We can’t thank you enough for adding these items to your orders and choosing to put the extra effort into the finishing details.
