There are many varieties of custom beaded clasps and closures, but I tend to stick with two basic forms of buttons and toggles. Each of the variations that I use the most have all been included in tutorial projects, and now they are available as a single lesson in beaded clasps.
This new compilation tutorial features instructions from four different beading tutorials, highlighting the beaded clasps, with new tips and insights for making your own custom closures. The tutorial includes instructions for making brick stitch buttons with two different finishes, odd count peyote toggles and even count peyote toggles.
In honor of Canadian Thanksgiving today, I’m giving away a copy of the Beaded Clasps tutorial to a pair of lucky readers! I’m so grateful to be able to create and share jewelry designs and ideas both here on Inspirational Beading, and through my shop. I hope that we can all continue to share and learn together for years to come!
