Question rookie question

Hi, everyone! I hope you can help me out with a couple of questions I have. I'm a writer, doing a little research on jingle dresses for a story idea I had. I just wanted to clarify - the cones on your dresses - what are appropriate things to make them out of? I've heard snuff can lids, (though how many of those can a person collect these days?) plain tin, soup can lids, baking powder tin lids. Is there anything that would be inappropriate?

Would you ever lend someone your dress to wear? Or is there so much effort involved in making the dresses that it's not common to do that?

Is there a standard number of jingles, or rows of jingles on the dress?

Any info you can give me would be deeply appreciated! Thanks a million.
