New Antiqued Brass Head Pins and Jump Ring Findings at Bumbershoot Supplies

Newly available at Bumbershoot Supplies, jump rings and headpins to match our line of antiqued brass settings, drops, connectors and other findings. Eye pins are being plated as I write this.
Yee haw!
It would seem like it should be a simple task to locate these findings, but I have been working for months to identify the right source to be the perfect complement to our line of high quality antiqued brass findings, so Jim and I are really excited about these new additions. 
Here is what we now have available for your designs (and mine):
Jump rings in 4mm, 6mm and 8mm in standard wire thicknesses.  We’re working on thicker ones and perhaps even some in twisted wire, sound good?
Head pins and (any day now) eye pins in standard thickness of 21 gauge, 2 inches long.  We plan to add thinner 24 gauge soon.
All in the highest quality yellow brass, plated in a rich golden honey antiqued brass shade to match all our other antiqued brass.
Plus, sealed with a jewelry grade non toxic lacquer for gloss and durability.
No lead, no nickel, and for you folks in the European Union, no cadmium either.
Quality shows! 

These beautiful findings are American-made by a family company in business since the 1940s.  They are plated by another American company, in business since the 1950s.  Both companies are such a pleasure to work with, the search for the right fit was worth it!
It’s the small things in life.

Next on our list, American-made chain!
