What advice would you give someone starting this project? Some of my friends like the magnetic clasps because they are easy to fasten and unfasten when you're reaching behind to put on or take off a necklace. However, from experience, I have learned that they are not a good choice for bracelets as the magnets have a tendency to fasten themselves to other metal objects such as shopping carts, baby stroller handles, even refrigerator doors. It's easy to lose a bracelet this way.

It would be hard to settle on one when all are so beautiful.
