Not sure if you found some or where, but I found some at

I made it with a twist couldn't find the latch to finish it so improvised with two knots so it could be made larger or smaller by sliding. And added some character with a jewlery cog instead of a regular key ring loop. (Its a gift) Thanks so much!
