My sons have been collecting and polishing stones for a little while now. Some of them are so pretty they thought they`d make jewellery for aunts/granny etc but I dont know where to get them from. I`ve found my way to lots of jewellery "findings" sellers but no one seems to sell something that would "grab" the top of the stone (with or with our glue) yet have a hoop suitable to thread a chain through. Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

The title should say "Any Suggestions" not "and suggestions". Must learn to preview!

I would think you'd need large-ish bead caps or you could try the spiral cage type - depends on how big the stones are

You can get bendy spiral hoops that the stone can go in IYSWIM.
