Boot Camp

It is time for Boot Camp again and this time it is all about clasps.  Last time I showed you some coiling work that I'd done with the Coiling Gizmo - and I wondered if I could make a clasp with these coiled components.  The answer is yes!  I've made a series of coiled links, incorporating some glass beads for some added interest.  I've paired this with a resin leaf that I made some time ago - it has been sitting in my 'to be completed' pile for a while now and it is good to find it a home!


Here is a close-up on the clasp since this is what Boot Camp is all about........................


Please go and have a look at what everyone else has been making for boot camp - there is always beautiful  and varied work on show.

    1. Thanks Lisa. I was trying to make the clasp as seamless as possible so I'm glad that you think it blends with the rest of the necklace.

    1. Thanks Niky. The Coiling Gizmo really speeds things up - not sure I'd attempt this without it!

  5. It's perfect! I like how the clasp is a continuation of the rest of the necklace design. Really well done and clean looking too.
