CLASPS!

Artbeads.com has a large selection of cute Silver clasps and a variety of other unique clasps. For this month's blogging
program, I decided to focus on clasps, and picked out a few favorites on their website.
A double stranded Puzzle hook clasp, a couple of Swivel lobster clasps, this awesome silver
button clasp.


The elephant lobster ended up in a bracelet already.
I put this bracelet together for a publication submission.
It's very Moroccan, with the Moroccan red enameled bead from
Barbara Lewis and the Stick pearls, turquoise and coral rounds.
The elephant ties it all together nicely.

Artbeads.com has a great website, easy to navigate and lots to choose from. I was also in love with the Kissing Birds clasp, but I put it on my wishlist for my next order.

Artbeads.com has sent me these products, free of charge, to review on my blog and I have not been paid for my endorsement of these products as it pertains to the products received. I have given an honest review of the products sent to me.

  16. Love your choices, I especially like the two strand puzzle clasp. Love to see what you make to go along with it. I was invited to join the Artbeads blogging group in December and just completed my first review. Would love to hear your thoughts on it.

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
