Magnetic clasps come in a wide range of designs, and hence, offer you a wide scope for creativity. These clasps have a magnet at one end and a magnetic material at the other, and it is the magnetic force of attraction that keeps the two ends fastened together. The biggest advantage of these clasps is the ease of use. You can also find them in an array of designs and finishes. However, you need to select the strength of the magnet carefully, depending on the weight of the piece of jewelry. Needless to say, stronger magnets come for a higher price. Magnetic clasps can offer great security, provided you choose the magnet well.
Crimping the beads is something that is done crudely, otherwise it makes the jewelry look very amateurish. Using a crimping plier, which makes a figure of eight at the jaws, enables quick folding. One can easily insert beads once the wire is properly crimped.
These clasps are designed for multi-strand pieces, and consist of a hollow tube and a bar that can pass through the tube. To close the clasp, one has to pass the bar through the entire length of the tube. Also known as slide lock clasp, this is commonly used in bracelets that are designed with two or more strands, and is easy to operate. You'll also find some varieties of the clasp that have the tube divided into five parts, with two parts of it attached to one end and the other three parts attached to the other. Tube/bar clasps are secure enough to support multi-strand pieces, but there's always the possibility of the bar slipping out.
