Q2 : Where can I find these connectors???

Pretty much in every bead shop. Craft stores and even online.

They range from colour to shapes and even number of strands .These are also called as multi strand metal components .

You can also find these connectors in online websites like

– eurekabeads.com.au

-beadneeds.com.au

Q3 : Why do we use these connectors ?

These connectors usually are used to chandelier earrings  or pendants .

Q4 : Can we make our own connectors ?

Yes we can, We can use the wiring technique to make own connectors .A 22 gauge wire will be very helpful to make some distinctive wire connectors like the ones below
