This knot was cut in mahogany on my scroll saw.I carved the detail in with a small carving knife and finished it with Danish oil. this was my first attempt at wooden jewelry. If I was to do a lot more jewelry i would need to do some research on suppliers for jewelry findings. I was not happy with the pin.
Thank you for looking. Any comments are welcome.

Hi Anna,
Here’s a few possible sites for some findings . . .
This one is a wholesaler (great selection), so if you do not have a registered business, try ordering through a friend who has one, or get your usual supplier to order. http://commerce.johnbead.com/
These do not carry as wide a variety . . .

Hope these help. Waiting to see your next piece of jewelry.

Another great piece! Your carving raises scroll sawing to a whole new level. Again, I hope people take the time to “Zoom” view your work. Also, good luck on finding a source for jewelry hardware—it should be out there.
