Or how to practice consistency.
I start out all well and good, I used a loch rosen on the first example, I used a delica on the bottom edge and a 2 mm on the top edge. I beaded an open square and a toggle bar for the clasp.
Then onto sample two, I used a loch rosen, a delica a 2 mm crystal and then.......I was sent this exquisite clasp from Ezel findings. The entire piece has the look of marquisite and I just absolutely could not resist using this clasp. Ezel findings have such an attention to detail and quality and this one was the perfect fit for this bracelet.
It's not a problem really unless you intend to kit said design and then a lack of consistency makes things difficult. You end up with different price points, different supply lists, different expectations. So it maybe this sample is just mine. Or it may be that I bead it up again using the previously designed toggle and offer this clasp for sale for those who prefer it. It is expensive, but I think you'll agree quality is worth paying for and I do love it in this design.
