New Press Releases
(Grants Pass, Oregon)--Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®, America's Favorite Beading and Jewelry Supply Company®, is making it easy to create one-of-a-kind men's accessories with new cuff link and tie tac findings.
Cuff links and tie tacs continue to gain popularity in everyday wardrobes as men's fashions reflect the Emmy-winning television drama Mad Men. Ideal gifts for Christmas, Father's Day, Valentine's Day, wedding events and graduations, these findings can be personalized with Kato Polyclay™, ICE Resin® and other adhesives or resins. Embellish with gemstones, Swarovski crystal Xilion chatons, scrapbook or other recycled papers, fabric and many other materials.
Plated brass cuff link components are available in 12mm flat pads and 12mm bezel settings. The bezel settings work beautifully with ICE Resin®. The flat pad is an excellent surface for adhering larger gemstone cabochons or coins.
Tie tacs are a simple, yet attractive way to dress up a shirt and tie. The button loop component anchors to a shirt button, holding the tie in place and keeping it out of the way when eating, working or playing. Made of plated brass, the 12mm flat pad surface easily supports gemstones, crystals, coins and more. View design inspirations featuring cuff links and tie tac findings in the Gallery of Designs.
Tie tac findings can also be used to create fashionable women's accessories, such as pins for hats, scarves and lapels. Featherlight, a FREE project in the Beading Instructions section, uses tie tac components to create a seed beaded sweater guard resembling 1950's style. Follow the step-by-step instructions to design one for your handcrafted line.
