I’m delighted to announce we are expanding the antiqued brass findings we offer at Bumbershoot Supplies. Watch us over the next few months as we grow this line of components, and see the new items already in stock here at Bumbershoot Supplies.
I am excited about these antiqued brass findings for so many reasons, and especially because they are made in the USA. Why do I care about that?
Well, there are 3 main reasons:
These brass pieces are made and plated by family-owned companies that have been around forever. They know their business. They use the same original tooling to make these findings as they have used for decades. The precision and attention to detail, it’s all there. There is an authenticity to these findings that simply cannot be matched. There’s a reason these businesses have been the center of the costume jewelry industry for so long.
Second, the quality of the yellow brass starting material is unsurpassed. Consistently using a high quality yellow brass yields a consistently beautiful antiqued brass product. Also important to me is that these findings are substantial. These are not the light weight brass findings that are now commonly available, these are thicker, weightier and quite durable over time. Side by side, the US-made wins, hands down. Whatever you choose to do with them, these findings will impart a luxurious look and feel to your designs.
Finally, we are confident that these findings are indeed nickel and lead free and are manufactured to the highest standards in that regard. We have them specially coated with a non toxic jewelry grade lacquer, to impart shine and to protect the antiqued brass finish, so you can expect your designs to last.
I’m so happy with these new components, I’m practically jumping up and down! I am loving using them in my designs and I know you will too!
