I've been searching the interweb all night to find dowel hinges like this guy descibes, but then brass or stainless.

I'm going to make a little jewelry box for swmbo and for the lid, i don't want the hinges to be visable. I have once seen these brass pins for sale, which you would insert into the lid of the box, and they came with little brass collets in which these pins would sit. These collets would sit in the sides of the box. At the time I thought, those are clever and I should bookmark them. Of course I never did....
Does anybody know where I can get these?
Also, i'm looking for padded ring holders. Anyone?

Thank you!!!

they`re just round section pieces of wood that turn inside a hole so you could use any similarly shaped metal just by cutting it to length
ring holders you can make yourself as well
hth
all the best

I keep some brass rod in stock in the workshop and just cut down to make the necessary dowell hinges as and when required.

I'll chop a bit off and stick it in an envelope to you if you pm me your full name address
