The Vintaj Branch!
Have you branched out into Vintaj metal yet? Well, why not? You could start with this metal branch! This week - following our recent trend of metal, metal, and more metal, we have some new Vintaj components for you. The Vintaj components have a wonderful sense of whimsy, and a very Art Nouveau influence.
We've added some fibre options lately, Mousetail (smaller than our regular Rattail), Silk Ribbons, and Wire Lace - which - I dunno. It's knitted out of wire, but the technique for making it is like making fabric, so is it Wire? or Lace? Anyway - what you are probably looking for at this point are some ribbon ends or connectors. Well, in the spirit of Murphy, this is the point at which our supplier decided to cease production of the standard, classic, been-around-since-the-50's clamp-on ribbon-end. Don't it just figure? So, we've been scrambling around, looking for alternates. We do have some options for you. This wide, toothy end clamps on, with the teeth providing extra traction - but you know, a little extra insurance with a dab of glue couldn't hurt either. Comes in Nickel plated or Gold Plated.
We also have these ends, for one or two cords, maybe three if they are small. These have a couple of holes in the side, so you could stitch through the hole with a thread or small wire for extra holding power, or it also gives a place for some glue to hang onto and dry out properly. We have these in Copper, Silver, Brass and Gold colour.
