We recently got into the jewelry business, starting with the iCufflinks and soon the iNecklace! This is pretty exciting because I’ve only really done electronics design so jewelry is a completely new expertise!
However, we needed to quickly get up to speed with where to get supplies, parts, tools, etc for jewelry. Like McMaster-Carr or Digikey but for shiny things.
Luckily our friend Becky suggested checking out Rio Grande. We actually remember looking through their catalogs many years ago – these guys have been around for decades and they have pretty much everything!
