    Everything Nancy Mc said plus I like the extra chains, which make the stones look even more delicate.

    Thank you, all. I’m pretty pleased with my first toggle clasp attempt. I enjoyed the challenge of figuring out the logistics of the closure with the triple chain. In the end, it worked! Yeah! BTW, the toggle started out as a round die cut piece that I put through the rolling mill with a piece of lace on top. Resulted in a wonderful texture and a perfect oval shape for a toggle.
