    Default Today I have mostly been making

    Toggle clasps....

    My amazing new disc cutter makes these an absolute pleasure to do.

    I've done lots of hammered and textured ones in the past, but decided to see what they'd look like set with a stone, and I rather like it. I'm seeing a whole new use for my box full of small cabs now.



    I suspect I'll add these to my findings range rather than just use them all myself

    I made the bezel Emma, and then decided it looked a bit boring, so I added an extra ring round it, which actually made it much easier to solder to the curved surface.

    J, I didn't rio it in the end - their shipping charges are hideous and they're 'unhelpful' to say the least on the customs declaration. I had another supplier recommended to me, and she was fantastic. And HM Customs and Excise will have to go to someone else for their xmas present money this year

    So is that an extra large disc cutter? I've been looking for one for ages
    Love the look especially the hammer one (favourite texture)
    The hammer one would be brill with a garnet on it.

    Those are fab George and I'm hard pushed to choose a favourite - I love the hammered one for its texture, but the stone set one is so unusual and would look great on a chunky bracelet or necklace with matching or complementing stones. Out of interest, what are the dimensions of them?

    I'm hoping for world peace but I'd also like something shiny as well...
