    The end wire of the clasp? I would curl it in – so it wouldn’t snag my clothers or grab some papers and mess them up – whatever. And that’s a great design for the colored Niobium wire too.

    Syd – I thought about that. The wire is actually just “artistic wire” from Lima Beads. It is a non-tarnish silver color, but I don’t think it is Niobium. :)

    So Beadaholic – When will we see your “surprise” design? 8)

    Agree with SYD on the clasp — I’ve found that a clasp ending straight like that can literally be a pain in your neck… even if you file and sand it ever so carefully! And with the Artistic wire you don’t have much choice, since you can hammer it only so much before it loses color, and you can’t heat it. But anyway — love your design here, lots of creativity!

    Very cool! What tools did you use? I’m trying to get a sense of people’s preferences as I try to decide what to get. I’ve gotten some great advice from others on here; would love to hear your thoughts, too!
