Default Source for stud earring posts?

I've been trying to find the stainless steel posts to make stud earrings - just the posts not the ones with the glue pads. Anyone have a source for these?

I'm assuming you need commercial posts so that the clutch backs will have something to catch on correct - meaning that just plain smooth wire would not work?

Thanks June

I got just the post (no gluing plate) from Corina Beads a while back.

I bought Sterling from Rio Grande. They might have stainless as well.

Rings & Things is running a sale on earring findings right now.

Here is their stainless steel posts... they have a pad, but you could cut it off I think.
You can get a gross (144) for $7.86

I have been using their titanium posts and love them.
