I thought maybe someone here who makes jewelry would know a good source. I'm going to try to convert over some of my silver and gold earrings to titanium and nylon, or anything else hypoallergenic. Thanks in advance!

I don't wotk with titanium, but I will be going to a couple ofmy suppliers this weekend and I'll inquire for you. I'm not 100% sure, but I don't recall seeing titanium (or non-metal) components at Michaels or AC Moore. I'll also look into the online suppliers I use, I'm sure one or more of them sell this type of supplies.

Thank you very much! I really appreciate you checking this out for me. I have looked at two different Michaels craft stores in this area, but maybe they're at a different one or something. One of the stores only had gold coated and silver coated or just plain fake stuff, and the other had that plus sterling silver. But no non-metal or titanium at either.

If I rmember correctly, FireMountainGems at one time offered some non-metal components. I believe I bought non-metal clasps from them a year ago (maybe a bit longer) Another site you might want to check is RioGrande. I think with this online company, you'll have to request a member number (free to join I believe) before you can browse their site. I haven't purchased from them in some time and of course, can't recall my member #. I probably won't hear back from them for a day or two, but I'll check out their site once I can get back in.
