Default Hardware for poppers?

Does anyone know where to get the hardware to make poppers for Noosa style bracelets? I've looked and looked to no avail but I've seen quite a few lampworkers making them. Also how do you set them, just with glue?

They're snap-on changeable tops for bracelets, pendants, etc.

They look like the kind of snaps one would see when sewing ... wonder if any of the larger ones (ie. for hats or coats) would also work?

I just started selling the three part sets as well as "stud" parts on Etsy. Come and take a look:

(I've fixed this link. Hopefully it works correctly now.)

Check out her etsy shop and you can see the bracelets and the poppers - they are all the rage in Europe and will be crossing the borders soon .

Check out Noosa Bracelets and you can see how they started...I think over a year ago. They are hard to get even on the mandrel for me, but I'm just learning everything, so more seasoned artists probably will find it much easier than I did. They're really fun.

I have another question, what glue would you use? Would E6000 be sufficient?

I would suggest a 2-part epoxy. Much stronger than E6000.

Thanks Lisi! Now about this part of the description:

"It is assumed you have the skill and tools necessary for assembly."



I have lots of tools, but not sure if I have the right ones.
