About the Kit...

This bracelet is made up of some unusual Czech Glass beads, including nautilus shape, Picasso Twist Bean, fire polish belly donut, and fire polish round beads, fire polish fluted beads and triangle cathedral beads. These are strung on C-Lon nylon beading thread, size D, in a color matching the predominant color of our beads. In this piece, we use a Toggle Clasp, the finish of which, is also coordinated with the beads. The clasp is secured by tying knots.

This single-strand bracelet is designed for a Woman and is 7 1/4" long. It is designed to fit comfortably around the wrist.

The holes of our beads, while sharp, should not pose a risk for a waxed beading thread.

I chose a Toggle Clasp because it has great functional properties, no moving parts, adds a lot of jointedness or support to the piece, is easy to use, and visually complements the overall design. The Toggle Clasp itself is a great support system.

With a Toggle Clasp, you need to be able to pull through the ring both the bar and the first one or two beads near the bar on your strand. I have made sure that the beads next to the bar are small enough to allow this to happen easily.

In this bracelet, we begin by tying off one side of our clasp to the thread, using three knots. We then go back and forth through our beads three times, tying 3 more knots at each end, before proceeding to the next pass.

While I often try to make my pieces adjustable in length, for this project, I am not doing this.

This bracelet is casual.

The instructions also discuss in detail how to select clasps, the pros and cons of various clasps and stringing materials, and the use of "support systems" in jewelry design.
