i AM IN SEARCH OF SWAROVSKI CUP CHAIN BLANKS..I AM FINDING THE ONES WITH THE STONES IN THEM BUT I WANT THEM EMPTY SO I CAN DESIGN MY OWN......CAN ANYONE HELP ME PLEASE... I AM NEW AT THIS AND AM NOT FAMILIAR WITH SUPPLY RESOURCES....I WOULD LIKE TO BUY IN BULK ALSO...
I've just been researching how to do this myself and came across a few references that might help:
Soldering Cupchains Plating Materials and Techniques
SRA Soldering Equipment Solder Fluxes and J Board
Also try Josef Bergs: http://www.josefbergs.com
Good luck... let me know how it goes.
This isn't an answer to the question, but I just wanted to say that I've just gotten back from touring Swarovski complex in Innsbruck, Austria. If you ever get a chance to go visit, don't pass it up. It's great and like a big kid's Disneyland. I just walked around saying "OH WOW!" and drooling the whole time. I couldn't believe the beauty of the things they have there. I will write a post on it for JMD soon.
you can find blanks on ebay for a decent price but i wasn't pleased with how they lay on the neck there is a company in israel that has some very exciting blanks i have ordered but it has been a month and dont have them yet. chandalir-jewelry they do wholesale retail earings bracelets necklace and stones. it has taken hours of research to find these.
sorry www.chandelier-jewelry.com hard to type this on a phone
I too have been on a seemingly endless search for these things and have been able to find just the one supplier that I'm sure everyone else is aware of. I'm wondering if someone can help me to understand why these elements are so so so incredibly difficult to find. I don't believe that I have ever used a product that - despite the enormous amounts of it existing in this world - I could only purchase through a sole source. Any thoughts, facts, rumors, suppositions, wags, old wives tales, and / or tea leaf readings would absolutely be appreciated.
One other question - the source that is available for blank chains advertises them as being made in the USA of the highest quality but I can't locate a US manufacturer for this product - they all seem to be located in China. Does anyone know of a US manufacturer for cup chains - either empty or with rhinestones? Thank you!
I've been looking at this site but wanted to make sure you received your order and they were a reliable company.
i have been pleased with the cupchain purchases from chandelier. shipping is high but arrives quick.
Hello, I am located in Tennessee , and I have blank cup chain already pre-cut to choker size available. I have it in silver and antique silver finish. Are you still interested in purchasing some? I am just about to list on ebay. Please let me know if you are interested and if so how much you would like to purchase.
Sure. Where can I see them?
I will list the bracelet shortly...
Do you still have any of the cup chain already pre-cut? I saw some listed on ebay once already cut and assembled and all I needed was to add the stones. If you still have these let me know.
I don't know this supplier, can you tell me? I've looked everywhere and cannot find them.
