Is it more advantageous to make you're own chain maille rings or buy ready made?
18 Apr 2016

Chain maille requires certain cutters, winders and such. It also is very time consuming. And on the other hand pre-cut chain maille is getting much cheaper. So you have to weigh the time against the expense.

Here is a good company for chain maill.

Master Wire Sculptor sells GemTite, which are similar. You might want to check out their website. They still carry them.

Whats the difference between synthetic stones and imitation stones?
04 Apr 2016

Imitation stones are made from any imitation material that looks like the real thing.

Synthetic stones are made from the exact material as the real stones only made in a lab.

Do you know how snap sets are manufactured?
28 Mar 2016

Yes they are made with a big automic press. That basically pops them out.

I understand fire mountain is still selling them.

And if you are still looking for them a company named LEE MANUFACTURING was the brain child of the snap set. They might still be around selling them but they are wholesale.

Why are snap sets so hard to find?
27 Mar 2016

It seems many companies have quit making them, at least not in silver plated and gold plated. I guess it is no longer profitable to make them in a plated material -- only in gold filled or sterling.

We do have a few left and when those are gone, we won't be ordering any more.
