Customer Testimonials

Kate Renee of Drifting Purpose

I have watched and re-watched a lot of Nunn Design videos and videos with Becky Nunn on Beadaholique or other channels. I also took advantage of the Summer School Program that was offered this year to learn more specifically about the Textured Resin Pieces. I find that these videos offer more instruction and a step by step look, as opposed to someone just showing me how to do it. One of my favorite features offered by Nunn Design is the ability to get Jewelry Inspiration from their website. From there, they give you the materials you need to create and the links to the tutorials. It’s helped me out immensely, as it has given me the ability to see how it was made, but the confidence to also make it my own. You can especially see this when I first began documenting my Journey with jewelry on Instagram. I started with 2 shells I found on the beach, the Easy Craft Silicone Putty Tutorial and Nunn Designs Deep Open Bezels. I sat at my kitchen table with my 5 year old and I played with the putty while having several “A-Ha” moments while watching the video and reading the blog. I went through a lot of putty that day, as it cures pretty fast. Yet, the videos really give you the confidence to try and succeed.

Sand Bay Jewelry

In the beginning, I was choosing and purchasing findings willy nilly. I shopped by price, sometimes purchasing items from outside the United States. For a lot of reasons, that never really felt good, honestly. I also had a few terrible customer service experiences that put me into a position where my customers were let down.
After a lot of research and digging, I found Nunn Design and I have never felt more confident in the quality of the work I deliver to my customers. You will not find a better company offering components for this kind of work. The components are well made and sturdy – never feeling cheap or fragile. The Earring Findings are generously plated with precious metals and are nickel-free.  The bezels are cast in lead-free pewter and also plated with precious metals.
The designs are timeless, with every new collection staying true to Nunn Design’s gorgeous organic natural style. The artisanal workmanship shows in the quality. The fact that Nunn Design is a woman driven business located in the USA makes me beyond proud.
It’s also important to state that the customer service I have received from Nunn Design has been outstanding. It feels like a conversation between two friends. That kind of customer service and support is simply remarkable.

Rebecca Sower

Consistency and quality, for sure. A lot of my jewelry begins with a vintage piece, or sometimes one of my daughter’s handmade ceramic pendants or maybe a natural stone. So the jewelry components that come alongside these elements need to be beautiful and durable as Nunn Design findings definitely are. I really don’t use any other findings with my jewelry pieces. It’s also a bonus that I get to hear actual feedback from women as they are looking at the jewelry in my shop. I often hear ‘nice quality’ or ‘unique’ or ‘love this design’, and I know the Nunn Design components contribute to that in a big way. Also, your customer service has always been very reliable and prompt. I’ve never had the slightest issue with an order.

I am a loyal Nunn Design product user because the quality is excellent and the options are plentiful. I place an order and within days my order arrives. That is critical as many of my commissions are time sensitive.

Brandi Light of Little Blue Bus

I started out using inexpensive and lower quality blanks. They were a great way to begin and to practice. Now that I have built a small business creating jewelry, I want people to keep coming back. I want them to fall in love with their pieces and wear them for a long time. In order for that to happen, I need to have exceptional quality materials. I found Nunn Design just doing a simple search online for wholesale jewelry supplies. And I was hooked. I bought my first batch of blanks from Nunn a few years ago and that was it. Nunn has unique shapes, thick blanks, and that soft buttery metal that is easy to stamp on. They offer inspiration pieces, classes on how to be creative with their findings, and the pricing is perfect. I look forward to their catalogs and seasonal launches. Becky and her staff have always been so kind, helpful when I have questions, and quick to respond. It’s easy to love Nunn Design – I’m a customer for life.

Kari at Mile High Beads

I first discovered Nunn Design years ago when I worked for a bead shop. Recently, I was searching for metal frames to replace the ones I was making by hand and I remembered the Nunn Design brand! I was so happy to find that Nunn Design had the type of unique shapes and substantial sizes I was looking for! I also love that they are plated with fine silver, 24kt gold, and pure copper so I know they will wear well for my customers!

I love working with Nunn Design. You make our process so much simpler. I love that Nunn Design products are made in the USA. I love that all of your findings & metals match, so we have no need to go anywhere else for certain parts or pieces. The customer service has been so attentive to us over the years, making sure we are taken care of. And even creating some new products from our designs. We can’t ask for anything more from a partner!

Ceci Leibovitz

I was searching for quality American made jewelry findings a couple of years ago and was pleasantly surprised to find Nunn Design! What stood out to me right away is that each item evoked a good and nostalgic feeling in me – the passion behind the designs was so apparent to me;  each had the look of being one of a kind, made especially for the wearer. I find there is a timeless quality to Nunn Design jewelry findings which somehow possess a feel of traditional handcraft, yet simultaneously a fresh and modern look that does not compete with my materials or style. I was so happy from the start, with the excellent quality of the findings; they are sturdy and well made, the finishes are beautiful and it is obvious in the tiniest of details that no shortcuts are taken in production.

Moth & Twig

When I started making mosaic jewelry I sampled findings from various suppliers. I stuck with Nunn because of the quality and the customer service. I spend a lot of time creating my mosaics so I wanted to make sure that I place the mosaics in high quality bezels that will stand the test of time. Sure, I can find less expensive bezels elsewhere, but as I tell my customers, why would I spend so much time creating mosaics just to put them into cheaply made, sub-standard bezels. I want to know that I can stand behind my work and with Nunn bezels, I feel that I can. Also, the customer service is fantastic and I know that if I ever have a problem, it will be taken care of. When I teach workshops, I always highly recommend to my students that they use Nunn findings.

I love all of your products! I never have to worry that what I purchase will not be of great quality. This saves me time by not having to research other vendors to use. The customer service is also top-notch!

I think I found Nunn Design while in search of a hexagon open frame bezel…and was hooked ever since! I really love and appreciate how innovative Nunn Design is, with your flash sales and new designs released seasonally, it really keeps things fresh and helps makers innovate. The focus of my jewelry is mainly on natural materials and resin, the findings from Nunn Design are able to support that in a way I wouldn’t be able to create on my own. Thank you for supporting small makers like me!

I loved the fast video option and then having the steps written out to go back to.

The Spring Semester was a fabulous way to learn new techniques and practice new skills. I loved the fast video option and then having the steps written out to go back to. Thanks so much. I look forward to the next one.

Cathie Withyman

All the techniques she presented answered my “Wow! How’d she do that?” questions.

Just when I start thinking I’m content with my resin crafting skills Becky Nunn offers a class that gets me excited about new techniques all over again. The Spring 2019 semester was no exception. Learning to use resin with Crystal Clay and Perlex Powder lit up my right brain. A whole new world of possibilities opened up. All the techniques she presented answered my “Wow! How’d she do that?” questions. Another huge benefit of the classes was seeing the work and comments of the other participants. Becky and the Nunn Design team provide the most valuable and influential resources for my business.

The classes and discussion removed my fear, but also gave me confidence in this method.

I have been resistant to working with resin for several years. I have watched videos in the past, but they made me even more uneasy. Nunn’s method of step by step instructions with the ability to ask question during the tutorial was a learning method that had me excited to work with resin in the various forms. The classes and discussion removed my fear, but also gave me confidence in this method. In my opinion much more effective than a one way video.

I loved the idea of these intro classes and the kits and took the plunge

I was always nervous abut trying to work with resin. It always looked so complicated. But I loved the idea of these intro classes and the kits and took the plunge. I’m so glad I did, I loved these classes. Becky explains everything very well in her videos and it helps so much seeing her make the projects from beginning to end. And even seeing a few “mistakes” and how to fix them! Thank you so much to everyone at Nunn Designs for all the hard work they put in making these wonderful classes and putting the kits together. I can’t wait for the next ones! Hint, hint!

Cathy Voss

Becky Nunn’s spring semester sessions helped me grow as an artist. I always looked at her jewelry saying “wow, I wish I could make that”; now I can because she took the time to show me how. Trying alone at home did not always yield perfect results; with her along side me on this journey, she made me feel like I could do anything, create anything and share my beautiful items with others. I especially loved being part of a community of creators, who shared pictures of their final products from each class. This allowed me to get inspired even more; not only by Becky, but also by my peer mixed-media lovers. Becky’s tips and tricks, that she learned the hard way are life-saving. Since the classes, I now always set my phone timer to 2-minutes when I mix my resin and it is incredible what difference it makes to my pieces. I can’t wait for more semesters from Becky.

I began to feel confident to start using resins and new techniques

I took the Spring 2019 Nunn Design Class because I wanted to learn more about using resins and expand my jewelry making skills. The class videos were easy to follow. I liked being able to purchase the class kits so I had everything and didn’t have to sort through what I had to make sure I could complete the class. I really liked the whole experience and I began to feel confident to start using resins and new techniques.

Anna Pendrak

These workshops really got my creative juices flowing and now I can’t spend enough hours a day in my studio!

I have never participated in an online claass like this before, but I loved it! I had been buying a lot of Nunn products because I liked them, but would spread them out on my workspace and could not decide how to use them! These workshops really got my creative juices flowing and now I can’t spend enough hours a day in my studio!

Marcy Delesandi

I had the pleasure of joining the Spring Classes of Nunn Design where we learned some amazing new techniques working with resin. My favorite was incorporating pearl pigment into my pieces. The results were outstanding and opened so many new doors for creativity. Nunn Design is incredibly generous in sharing their knowledge at no cost to students!

Karen Hess

I learned so much about the nature of resin. The class videos are informative and easy to follow. What I loved about the class also, is the creativity, inspiration of, and interaction with the other students.

Jennifer Ritchie-dietzler

Becky and the Nunn Design team provide fun and accessible tutorials, as well as high quality materials. I especially enjoyed the support of the online community during the courses. I would recommend Nunn Design courses to anyone looking for a place to start with resin and clay jewelry designs.
