This is a terrific clasp for bracelets and necklaces. Toggle clasps are easy to operate and are very secure.
Because they are easy to operate with one hand they make an excellent clasp choice for a bracelet. I designed this particular one for my Wrapped Bead bracelet designs. One of these Wrapped Bead designs is covered in my Double Wrap Beads Tutorial, available here on Craftsy..
You can make these in just about any thickness of wire. You want it to be sturdy enough to maintain its shape.
I use 16 gauge wire in the step by step example. You can make yours smaller and use a smaller gauge of wire.
I love sharing jewelry-making techniques!
I write my tutorials assuming that students have no experience. I leave nothing for you to guess about or try to figure out. They contain lots of pages but are filled with full-color step-by-step photos of every detail.
With each tutorial I want you to be able gain a new ability that you can use for a lifetime!
