Folks, I’d love to hear some suggestions for finding wholesalers of
quality 14K and sterling “small” jewelry pieces -things like charms,
earrings and pendants. I don’t buy tons in the course of a year,
because most of what I sell is hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind pieces.
But my repeat clients and a whole community of folks I deal with
frequently request specific types of pieces that my current suppliers
Specific things I’m currently looking for (and this is pretty
common) are military-themed pieces (military insignia) and a good
range of collegiate licensed insignia items. But I’m always on the
lookout for other product lines to broaden what I can offer my
clients, so anything else you’d like to share will be welcome.
I know about and have accounts with places like Stuller, Rio, Loren,
and Quality Gold. I guess I’m looking for a place sort of like
Quality Gold, but with those specific types of items. Or a smaller
place targeted to those types of items. But I DO want quality work,
not cheap die-struck knockoffs.
So. any suggestions?
