[Looking4] Hollow carat gold charms


#1

Hi All,

I’m looking for a source for hollow carat gold charms to replace a
few charms that have been lost on a client’s bracelet, and also to
replace a “Snoopy” who has lost his body. The originals are all 9K
yellow, but I can probably sell her on the benefits of 14K if that is
all I can find.

I’ve tried my usual sources but have had very limited success, like
lots of hearts and sweet16 type charms, but nothing in the older
styles like you see in the wax pattern catalogues, but as she has ~30
charms on there already she would prefer to stick with the style and
hollow construction of the ones already present.

I’ll see if I can’t get a photo of the original to help with
narrowing down the charms’ styling.

Thanks everyone!
Cheers, Thomas Janstrom.

Try ALA Casting. Huge selection of older style castings. Aprox
150,000 styles. Some of their catalogs are online, others not. I have
most of their hardback books from the last 50 yrs.

Thomas, you probably know that trying to find a certain charm from
long ago is usually impossible - there’s probably 30 billion unique
charms in the world. We use: http://www.rembrandtcharms.com/ when we
need such things.

I Googled “snoopy charm” - also google images - and got
lots…Remember an earring becomes a charm the minute it goes on a
bracelet…
