These will make larger-size hippie-like earrings, or great pendants. The metal is a beautiful color. These are a great starting point for jewelry projects. Thank you!!

Well, just when i think i can't find a single original piece, along come these little, lightweight brass "things"! My mind has been in high gear with them since they arrived. Great find. Thank you!

These little pieces are perfect for a number of jewelry applications. Love the coloring, the size, everything about them. At about 0.12oz each, there's a bit of room to add to without getting too heavy. Love 'em!

About

QSMUSE is THE Place for NOS Antique/Vintage Hardware, as well as Industrial Gems, Collectables and FABULOUS Repurposed HARDWARE JEWELRY!

I live in Pennsylvania... PICKER'S PARADISE...according to American Picker's, Mike Wolfe.

It started in 2003 after we moved here from living on a Sailboat for 13 years...I know, Dirt Dwellers and Land Lubbers now! Old Wood Shutters are the culprits that started my "Curb Shopping" lust. They are everywhere... and one thing led to another...made Shutter Benches, End Tables, Coat Racks. Then started gathering Collectables and all things OLD. We have such good old JUNQUE here.

Meanwhile, having been a Seamstress all my life, I was picking up boxes of Old Linens and turning them into OOAK Decorative Pillows...STUFFED LINENS was born! I have recently opened a second shop (STUFFEDLINENS) to make room for all my Hardware, Industrial Gems, Collectables, Hardware Jewelry and Household Rehab they deserve.

Check back often so you don't miss out on some unique goodies.

My HARDWARE finds are a treasure-trove of VINTAGE and ANTIQUE New Old Stock (NOS) FURNITURE HARDWARE that was sitting in a dusty old warehouse that I want to see the light of day! Some are Mid Century Modern gems, while others are most definitely Victorian and early 20th Century. I also carry Salvaged Hardware and will state that, as well as if an item is all that I have, or if I can provide more quantity.

Enjoy looking around my eclectic SHOP SECTIONS offering unique discoveries in RE PURPOSED HARDWARE JEWELRY, HOUSEHOLD REHAB, INDUSTRIAL GEMS, SEATING, LIGHTING and COLLECTABLES Come back often, as I always have something waiting in the wings to list!

Shipping
Shipping OVERAGES will be cheerfully REFUNDED back to your account (if over $1 for most things, but for the larger furniture items it is over $5). Its' hard sometimes to figure the correct postage, as I carry a vast array of different sized items.

Large Furniture or Bulky Items may be shipped GPX (Greyhound Package Express). It is shipped Station to Station and you would have to pick up at the Greyhound near you. They will call you when it arrives, so I would need your Phone Number with your order.

Most FURNITURE HARDWARE is shipped Priority FLAT RATE Small Box or FLAT RATE ENVELOPE. I also use Regular Mail. (But, sometimes it's cheaper to go Flat Rate.) Convo me if you want insurance BEFORE PURCHASING, as that will be an additional cost per package on REGULAR shipping. All purchases come with TRACKING and PRIORITY has an automatic $50 Insurance.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not totally thrilled with your HARDWARE purchase (should it not be the right size, I will refund the PURCHASE PRICE. However, you will be responsible for Return Shipping Charges. And of course, item must be in the condition you received it.

Please contact me if you have any problems with your purchase and give me the chance to MAKE IT RIGHT! I'll give you a week to return. CUSTOM ORDERS and LARGE PIECES are not refunded, I'm sorry. Packaging those takes hours, in some cases.
Additional policies and FAQs
As all my Shop Items are VINTAGE or ANTIQUE, sometimes there are AGE CONDITIONS that crop up. They have been around l long time, with a FORMER LIFE and I think, it's part of their charm. (Sort of like wrinkles...I've earned them!) .

I want you pleased with your HARDWARE PURCHASE, as well. I try to describe, to the best of my hardware knowledge, the condition of said pieces. As they are VINTAGE or ANTIQUE (or SALVAGED) and have been sitting in open bins for years, they sometimes have some oxidization. Know that different terminals, lighting or cameras can alter the look. Honasty is my policy!

I will be happy to sell INTERNATIONAL to most places, just CONVO me first. Any TAX, SURCHARGES or COUNTRY CHARGES are the responsibility of the BUYER, NOT the SELLER.
