We are pleased to announce a new line of findings. JAR/JAF will be carrying a number of the findings in non-tarnishing silver color. This plating is a false-rhodium finish. (Platers also refer to it as a white metal finish). After careful consultation with our plating company and with a number of JAR/JAF findings users, we chose this plating instead of sterling since it will not tarnish and does not need to be polished or protected. We are starting with a number of our findings and will expand to other findings as they are requested. We also have several new findings that lend themselves to the silver finish rather than the gold. Of course we will continue to carry the 22K gold plated findings.
The “silver” plated findings will have the same prices and designator numbers as our 22K gold plated findings, but their numbers will have -S after them – such as 173 for gold and 173-s for the silver color. For your convenience, we are listing them on a separate price/order sheet so that you can see at a glance which are the silver parts.
We have a number of new pieces that we have not had in the past and we have returned several pieces from the past which had been discontinued. Unfortunately we have had to discontinue some other finding designs as various manufacturers have closed.
We also are putting out a line of chandelier and sconce kits – a number of them in the silver finish.More on this in the weeks to come.
