Clasp Happy!

Usually, when I make jewelry, I want to make the beads stand out – after all, I make beads! Of course I want my beads front and center! But sometimes, a clasp needs to be the center of attention and the beads just go with. Recently, I discovered A Grain of Sand, an on-line store owned by Suzanne Branca. She was just featured in this month’s BeadStyle Magazine, on page 64. She has a great shop – I love her vintage finds! I especially love the clasps I just bought from her, pictured above! The turquoise one has a plan already – a spectacular bracelet and the clasp is going to be front and center! The other two were “I need them” purchases and will tell me what they want to be later! In the meantime, you should visit A Grain of Sand – you’ll love her finds!
