[ ~ 2018 Update: We’ve upgraded our design gallery (again!), and expanded some of the sections – so links below are updated. Also, we no longer produce a printed catalog; we’re just online (plus we have a Showroom in Spokane, Washington — it’s open to the public, so come visit us if you’re in Eastern Washington state!) ~ ]
You’ve received our new 2009-2010 catalog, haven’t you? We’re very happy with it. One reason is all the fun jewelry designs it features. Now…
Rings & Things has uploaded dozens and dozens of these new entries to our Design Gallery! (Finally done. I see the light at the end of the carpal tunnel.) ☻☺ At last count we had something like 668 designs up. We group this free inspirational material into some useful categories:
- Wrist Wear (bracelets)
- Baubles and More, including ID badges, metal stamping, glue-on designs, and many more ideas
- Holiday Jewelry Design Ideas – now divided into:
Every design is illustrated by a great big beautiful picture of the finished piece and a parts list, complete with links to our online store if you’re going to buy the components.
You’ll also find links to free downloadable PDFs with full instructions to extra steps for making each design. (For example, we don’t re-write how to properly open and close jump rings, or make good head pin loops in each tutorial — we have a link to a PDF of jewelry basics. And for how to torch-enamel jewelry, we link back to our blog article where this is lots of room for good photos.)
