The whole point of handmade jewelry designs is to make them distinctly different.  Sourcing uncommon jewelry making components is helpful.  I came across ShiShi's Boutique and was wowed by the beautiful variety and quality from this Turkish supplier. Şeniz Özgüle says she personally hand picks her collection, many (but not all) made by artisans in Istanbul where she lives.

Shown here are some of my favorites from her store featuring both traditional and contemporary designs. A very small sampling from an incredible store which is updated daily. She added, "I also work with some craftsmen one-to-one to create new supply designs." She may be able to arrange for custom work so convo her if you are interested.
