Abstract: Organic materials have been the cradle for jewellery design. However, jewellery findings which are the basic components needed to complement its application for costume jewellery has seen a setback in development. The aim of this study was to design jewellery findings (auxiliaries) for organic materials in costume jewellery. Philosophically, this research hinges on the sustainable design approach to promote green technology for a sustainable environment by designing auxiliaries for organic materials to be used for costume jewellery creation. To fulfill the aim of the study, the objectives were to: investigate the types of findings for costume jewellery; and investigate existing organic jewellery emphasizing the jewellery findings employed and to design auxiliaries for some selected organic materials, demonstrating its adaptability for costume jewellery. The study focused attention on flamboyant seeds, bovine femur bone, ceriths, coconut shells and date seeds stemming from varied sources of organic materials. The research employed copper wire as the main material and the non-soldering technique of forming jewellery in the design of the auxiliaries for easy adaptability. The researcher employed the descriptive and experimental research designs for the study. The population for the study comprised organic materials, jewellery findings, organic jewellery and some metals employing the random and purposive sampling methods. In conclusion, the research projects the creation of auxiliaries as complements for the popularization of organic materials in costume jewellery design
