About this design:

I decided to recreate the link and clasp in 20 gauge and stick with the same design. I added one more set of double jump rings to the pearl side near the pendant to better match the stone link.

    I like it with the smaller gauge wire.

    The clasp is cool; I must try ;)

    You see, you did it, this has such a nostalgic feel, great job with the clasp and links :D

    Ooooo! Love them both but to me the redo is much more striking. I think it’s because there isn’t the distraction of the larger ( but gorgeous!) clasp and bail.

    The new clasp is much better Becky, more to scale with the rest of the piece. Connector too. I’ve tried making that clasp….ugh, it looked like crud when I finished.

    Yipes, I don’t remember the original, but I can tell it is a great classical piece, with neutral colors begging it to be worn with almost anything, whether it be dressy or casual. Like everyone else, I love that clasp, and I am sure it took lots of tries to get it the way you visualized it. A lovely creation!!!!
