Connectors – what are connectors ???

Hi guys ,

Today I am going to talk about connectors .In making jewelry the connectors do form an essential component. Very ideal to be used for making handmade jewellery for all skill levels , even ideal for beginners

 

Q1 : What are connectors ???

Connectors are metallic pieces which usually form the centre piece in making earrings mainly .These can also used like pendants in other handmade jewellery like  necklaces etc.

 

Connectors will look something like this

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

-ebay.com.au

– eurekabeads.com.au

-beadneeds.com.au

-firemountaingems.com

 

Q3 : Why do we use these connectors ?

These connectors usually are used to chandelier earrings  or pendants .

Like the one I have done here

 

 

 

 

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

 

Connectors really help in making some wonderful jewelry

Enjoy making handmade jewelry  more using connectors !

Red glass and white glass pearl silver toned dangle earrings

Hi,
I found these gorgeous antique silver toned 3 hole spacer beads online and I could not resist from buying them. Though I love them, these spacers were a bit too big for me to make bracelets. That’s when I had to design something out of these beautiful pieces.

I designed these earrings using the wiring technique along with the regular beading technique. Finally the earrings came out stunninig! !
