Identify a jewelry finding
Someone gave me a box of jewelry findings and there was a small bag of the things shown in the attached picture. Can someone tell me what they are and how they are used? Thanks

This looks like something you use to attach a key fob or something to your phone from back in the day when people made phone charms. You would have to have a phone with a place to connect it and I donít think they make them with that anymore.

You could use it as a zipper pull maybe? Purse charm?

Yep. Goes on a cellphone. For phone charms.

I have a pile of them. They are for attaching a bead or dangle to a cell phone. Back in the olden days phones used to have a little hole on the side of them just for that purpose.

Great to use for purse charms!!

zipper pulls for kids are still all the rage and even come in handy on purses!!

If you stuff the loop of thread (or what ever they call it ) through a bead hole and then stuff the miniature key ring end through the loop you can cinch it down and it will trap the bead ( or other 'finding' ) and then you can attach the miniature key ring to anything you want.

Which reminds me that I need to put one of those together to put on as a zipper pull ( or at least a zipper finder) so I don't have to take off my gloves to find my phone or just adjust the heat inside my coat while moving snow this winter.
