Sourcing Ethical Metal for Jewelry-Making

Recycled Metal

I searched high and low for recycled metal suppliers and finally came across Hoover and Strong who sells recycled silver and gold jewelry findings. They’re the folks who supply recycled jewelry superstars Figs & Ginger, so I feel comfortable recommending them! However, they only sell their products wholesale, so you’d need to be running a crafty business to order from them.

Has anyone run across recycled findings that are for sale to the general public?
