Isn’t This Clasp Perfect!!

Found these in my Clasps organizer. Been in there a couple years. Silver with tiny topaz Swarovski crystals. They are magnetic and fold over.

Perfect for my tubular herringbone bracelets.

Thought I would work again with my bronze and topaz beads. Still some left. And added some silver silver-lined ones to the mix. All 8/0 seed beads. My favorite size beads to work with.

I like how the clasp end fits inside the tube.

Well, back to the grind.

What are YOU working on?

Meet The Herringbone Family

Couldn’t just make bracelets. How naked would the rest of the body be!! So I made a necklace and earrings.

Here they are……

Necklace and Open Triangle Embellishment

Worn simple without.

Necklace doubles as a triple wrap bracelet.

This is a close-up of the open triangle. (It’s made using peyote stitch.) I added a 6 bead fringe all around it using 11/0 seed beads. It fits over the green button closure.

Can be worn with this bracelet.

And I made a pair of peyote earrings. (Maybe I will make some herringbone earrings.)

Took more photos of the bracelets. I think these are better.
