I have some very nice, on the expensive side (IMO), semi-precious gem beads that I purchased several years ago before my daughter came along.

The time has finally come to use those in some jewelry - they're not bringing much pleasure by sitting in the bag!

So...I have my jewelry making guide and needle nosed pliers..and now I need some jewelry parts - like sterling silver or gold earring pins, leverbacks, bracelet toggles, etc.

I've been looking around online and the ones I see look cheap and of dubious materials.

Does anyone know where the "high end" jewelers buy their jewelry parts? A catalog maybe?

Thanks, MP
