Topics: Clasps, Bracelet
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?
|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.
