Common Finding Colours

The majority of our range of findings are available in a range of different finishes. Colours available are dependent on what particular finding you're looking at (see the individual page for information on what colours it is available in). Colours that we often stock are:

 Antique Silver

Bright Silver

Silver The silver coating is usually either a bright silver, or a dull (antique) silver. As a general rule, our main jewellery making components (ear wires, head pins, parrot clasps, etc) are available in a bright silver colour, whilst our more decorative components (multi strand pieces, decorative metal beads, toggle clasps etc) are available in the duller, 'antique-y' finish. Photos available on the website are photos of the actual product - they usually show which kind of silver is available, as does the description. The first photo shows the more common (antique) silver, whilst the second photo shows our bright silver.

Antique Gold

Bright Gold

Gold As with silver, the gold coating is usually either a bright gold, or a dull (antique) gold. Photos available on the website are photos of the actual product - they usually show which kind of gold is available, as does the description. The first photo shows the more common (antique) gold, whilst the second photo shows our bright gold.
Black Black Also referred to as 'gunmetal', the black colour coating on our findings is reasonably uniform across our range, although on some findings (in particular crimps), it has a strong shine to it, making it hard to distinguish from nickel. Black does not come in an 'antique' look like the other colours available.
Bronze Bronze Also referred to as 'antique gold', or 'old gold', bronze has a mustard yellow look to it (that makes it sound awful, but it's not!). The bronze colour looks great with black beads, and is a great option when wanting to use gold, but not the bright gold colour.
Nickel Nickel Often referred to as a 'duller' silver, we have only a small range of findings available in a nickel colour. The nickel colour that we stock is very similar to the colour you see in many of the metals around the home - think of the metal colour of your knives and forks.
Copper Copper The copper coating has a strong red element to it - it's almost a brown/red colour. Copper has been one of our most popular colours for a while - it teams well black beads, and often with beads that have brown though them.
