Garter Belt Hardware Question

Okay ladies and gents! I’ve been wanting to make a garter belt for some time, and I have one I can use as a basic pattern, but running into one *teensy* problem. Where can I find the hardware for these? Hook & eye closure in the back is easy enough to find. I could even be lazy and use bra findings for that. But the actual clips that hold the stockings and the little pieces to make the straps adjustable in length? I have no idea. The adjustment hardware I could do without if need be, but not the clips.

I’ve checked Etsy.com and eBay. I’ve Googled it a number of different ways. The best I’ve found was a site linking to wholesalers- but I don’t need 100,000 of them as my minimum order, nor can afford the $2,000. or so it would cost me.

I’d really prefer to find a matched set, and not a handful of mismatched salvages from old clothing.

Thanks in advance! Looking forward to some direction here. :)
