“I bought 10 of these lovely little clasps. They are ideal for delicate work. At the time I was making fake ivory jewellery from polymer clay and making hand braided cords to hang the pieces from, these clasps provide a really nice way to finish the cords, anything larger would have overwhelmed the fine cord. If you make delicate pieces and want an unusual fastener rather than just a bolt ring or hook, then these tiny toggle clasps are ideal. I stitched my cords to the clasps using a sort of button hole/blanket stitch. If you are using a chain then obviously you'll need a jump ring or similar to attach it. I think they make an excellent finishing touch on any fine necklace."
