Powerful little magnets that are wonderful to finish off bracelets and necklaces.
We found these 11 x 11mm clasps to be quite strong. Take a look at our Twilight Bead Stew Bracelet -- looks good and works well. In fact, this is a very potent little magnet. To repeat what we wrote on the "Twilight" web page: Open it up using your fingernail to break the magnetic seal -- the magnets might very well be stronger than the thread!
We have these in gold (gold plate, not solid), and silver (silver plate)(sorry, those sold out). And a few in copper (sorry, those sold out too).
We want to emphasize again that a key factor in using these is what we had said earlier about these clasps: Open it up using your fingernail to break the magnetic seal -- the magnets might very well be stronger than the thread!
One other idea on using the magnetic clasps -- courtesy of Catie -- the strength of the magnet can break the thread (as we discussed). If the thread breaks, your bracelet could unravel. So this tip is: Complete the bracelet, and finish off the ends. Then attach a SEPARATE piece of thread, and use THAT to sew the magnetic clasp to your bracelet. That way if the thread breaks, your bracelet is saved, and you can just attach a new thread.
We consider these to be great little clasps -- and we think you'll like.
