Art Bead Toggle Clasps

Why use a simple clasp when there is an art bead that can do the job!  Be creative, you can mix and match components for an even more customized design.  I like to add a tiny bit of chain or a few extra jump rings so that the toggle bar can easily fit through the hole. 

Another design tip: use fancy glass headpins like Cindy Gimbrone’s Double Dips to create a toggle bar for your clasp.

    Great toggle ideas. You've given me impetus to start making my own. Now I know what today's project will be! They all looks so great displayed here.

    These are way too pretty to hide in the back. They need to be an integral part of the design. Front and center!
    Thanks for sharing the inspiration!
    Enjoy the day!

    Thanks for sharing some super sources for "art" clasps !
    Nothing makes me more disappointed than to see a good design spoiled by a boring mass produced clasp!
