Topics: Clasps, Bracelet

Q.
What is the best clasp for a bracelet? Magnetic clasps require two hands if they are strong enough for heavier pieces, as do most other clasps. What is the easiest clasp to work with one hand?

A.
The box clasp seems to be the easiest clasp to operate with one hand. These clasps have a tab insert, and with gentle pressure on the tab, the insert slides in and out easily from the main clasp component. Other clasps suggested as easy, from a recent poll in the office, include lobster and toggle.

See the article ''Clasps: Closing the Show'' for clasp images and descriptions.
