This Saturday is reveal day for group three in the 7th Bead Soup Blog Party. I thought I would give a sneak preview of some of the things I made. The rule is that you must use the focal and the clasp that your blog partner sends you. In my case, my partner Miranda Ackerly sent me a great focal and clasp and I am using them both-but in different pieces. So decided to make a clasp for one of the necklaces out of brass
The pieces cut out
The brass disk was part of the bead soup and I textured it and the loop and toggle clasp
Ready for soldering. You’ll have to wait for reveal day to see the finished clasp.
This is a clasp I made for another piece you will see on reveal day. It’s made of stripped electrical wire and a section o ring from a 5 gallon plastic bucket which resembles thick buna cord and it’s free when you find it in the street!
And here are some more preview pix!
