Those cool brass findings are from Michaels. I combined several kinds of findings to make the earrings. The beads are wire wrapped with ball end head pins that I made. They call those large loops jump rings and they are very easy to open and close. In fact,they close tightly enough that not much can slip out of them. Those little cups that cradle Cindy's glass beads could also be used for resin, I am thinking. The brand of these findings at Michaels is called Forged and they are made by Plaid.
