Okay, here’s a sample of the double spiral in process, the beads I got from Marilee that I wrote about here. I tried adding the triangles on the exterior occasionally, but they got lost. I bought this button at General Bead in San Francisco, hoping it would work. I don’t like buttons for clasps because they don’t feel as secure to me as a lobster claw, or toggle. But, I also don’t like to bring in a metal clasp when there’s no metal anywhere else in the piece. So, I’m going to use a button, and try to size the loop well.
(Look, a better picture!)
