One classic way of adding interest and complexity to a jewelry piece is to have multiple strands. There are many different ways of accomplishing this but one of the simplest and most convenient is to use multi-strand findings.
In today’s video I show you not only a wide variety of multi-strand jewelry findings, but I also show you a few different ways you can create your own findings for multi-strand designs.
One tricky thing about looking for these findings online is that they don’t have any particular standardized name. I’ve seen them called multi-loop, hole or ring findings, and the pieces themselves have been referred to as connectors, bars, ends, end pieces and more.
Whatever name you call them and however you find them, I hope that you’ll have fun using your imagination and creatively using these interesting findings.
Below are links to some of the findings you’ll see in the video as well as a few others that I thought would be fun to use.
