Hi All: Has anyone tried using tie tack findings instead of
conventional pin stem backs on Sterling Silver Jewelry? I use a
single tack on Tie Pins and Lapel pins, and recently tried using two
on a larger silver brooch. I placed them approximately at the points
at which a standard pin stem would enter and leave the fabric. I
found them easier to solder onto the piece, easy to use (no fussing
with the little tab that closes around the pin stem) and very secure
when on clothing.
I wonder whether clients would have a problem with them? Should
there be “full disclosure” when describing the jewelry? Would that
be meaningful for someone who hasn’t seen or tried them?? Any other
downsides I haven’t thought of?
I would appreciate any thoughts, advice, ideas about using these.
