Topics: Seed Beads, Finishing a Design
I am in love with seed beads but I have serious issues getting my work finished. I can stitch a toggle clasp but the toggle-bar never fits. It's too small or too big. Could you please help me?
The design "Peyote Linked Squares" offers instructions on how to create a toggle bar. The dimensions for the toggle bar are based on the size of the open square focal component in the design. When creating the toggle bar for your design, make sure to stitch the beads so the length of the bar is longer than the width of the toggle ring.
The project, ''Bracelet with Seed Beads'' has complete instructions and illustrations for decreasing the peyote end then adding a clasp. You can also add a magnetic clasp or toggle to the ends of your design.
For even more finishing options, be sure to review the many seed bead books available.
