Where to buy unique DIY jewelry supplies. I’ve gotten two messages asking where I buy jewelry supplies. I buy a lot at Michaels (because it’s local), ebay and etsy. I love Rio Grand for high end jewelry supplies (like sterling silver ball chain). Ornamentea and Objects and Elements both have rotating stocks of unique supplies. For more jewelry supply resources go here: truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/supplies For more info on buying jewelry supplies online go to Thanks, I Made It’s excellent post here.
- Cameo Skull and other Macabre Jewelry Supplies from Etsy here.
- Examples of Ornamentea’s jewelry supplies here. LOVE their mini bottles. Some of the links don’t work because of rotating stock.
- Objects and Elements/Ornamantea jewelry supplies here. Again, some of the links to specific supplies may not work because they are sold out.
- Charms on Etsy here. These 36 keys cost $11.50 + $3.80 for shipping.

Donatella from inspiration & realisation had a review of fabric paints (and since no craft paint sponsors her I trust her fully) here: http://www.inspirationrealisation.com/2011/06/fabric-paints-review.html
