Bindels Ornaments

This is a great site for do it yourself chandeliers, candlesticks and items made from jewelry findings a la JAR-JAF style. They are the European counterpart to JAR-JAF and items are listed in Euro currency. Their TUTORIALS are listed under WORKSHOPS and EXAMPLES.

Under the TECHNIQUES section, they explain
- how to open and close jump rings
- how to make loops and pendants
- how to insert bi-pins into candle sockets

Pictures are large.
Instructions are in ENGLISH (despite being based in the Netherlands) and easy to understand.

It is worthwhile to sign up for their newsletter. Periodically they offer discounts, such as not charging the VAT  (amounting to about a 15% discount).

Their stock of items is not nearly as extensive as offered by JAR-JAF, but this makes navigating the site and narrowing your choices easier.

You can check out their website here.
