While working on a jewelry project for an upcoming magazine issue I had to go to Joann for some findings and it really opened my eyes to new possibilities. I had never really considered designing much jewelry before but I really got inspired by all the beautiful clasps, chains, and beads. It was amazing! You would think that I didn’t take a couple of jewelry making classes in college, but to be fair we did more soldering and hammering metal than working with findings at Joann. When I saw this toggle clasp I knew it was crying out to be made into a crochet bracelet. The clasp came in a set that had other sayings and can be found at Joann here. I never knew these could be so inexpensive, either, especially when you use coupons!
