Attleboro, MA (PRWEB) February 3, 2006
The Jewelry Findings Glossary of Terms, edited and republished with the permission of the Manufacturing Jewelers & Suppliers of America (MJSA) now includes more (150+) terms, new product profiles, and photographs of many jewelry findings and components, making it easier than ever for those seeking detailed information on jewelry making and jewelry findings to find what they are looking for.
Links to items included in the Guyot line of decorative stampings, including filigree, charms, and other ornamental findings are actively linked to appropriate pages in the website. Additionally, many product profiles offer a Google search function for the user's convenience.
"What may surprise many people is that understanding and sourcing the multitude of jewelry components for jewelry manufacturing can be very complex. A brooch, pendant, bracelet, or earring may appear simple to the consumer or casual observer, but material quality, size specification, and use of the correct jewelry findings for the job are critical elements in the function of a manufactured or crafted jewelry object. To the new or inexperienced, or even seasoned buyers, a Jewelry Findings Glossary of Terms can be a resource they turn to again and again when trying to obtain the necessary parts for a new jewelry design. It can take decades of gathering and painstaking attention to detail to build an in-house findings library. We hope the Jewelry Findings Glossary of Terms will help", stated Andrea Guyot Twombly, Vice-President of the fourth generation decorative jewelry findings manufacturer.
Many educational institutions have been freely linking to the Jewelry Findings Glossary of Terms, and others are welcome to do so as well. It has become a powerful and popular bookmark or "favorite", not only to professional jewelry findings buyers, but individual jewelry crafters, jewelry making and metalsmithing students, artisans, vintage jewelry collectors, and people who just have an interest in jewelry. It not only provides convenient reference insuring the user the proper vocabulary, but through its search function, the Jewelry Findings Glossary of Terms can become a quick and easy buying resource.

Another example would be a profile of a broader term such as filigree
