We have lots of new arrivals this week at BDi, including these lovely diamante toggle clasps featuring Cupid’s arrow encrusted with tiny diamante stones. We thought we would give you some design inspiration and make a pretty beaded bracelet with one of our new toggle clasps, showing that your fastenings don’t just have to be an afterthought! Toggle clasps are great to use as they can be secured with one hand and fastened easily by the wearer. Follow our guide and see how we’ve used our new toggle clasp as a functional feature, and the main focal point of this lovely bracelet.
To create the bracelet, Jo measured out 10 inches of tiger tail, finishing off one end by threading on the ring of the toggle clasp and securing with a flattened crimp bead. She then threaded on the bicones, disco balls and rondelles to create the pattern you can see above, and finished off the end of tiger tail with the arrow piece of the clasp, and another flattened crimp bead to secure together.
Also, take a look at some of our new metallic crystal bicone beads that have just arrived! Available in gold, half gold, silver and half silver, these would be perfect teamed with the new Diamante Toggle clasps to create a stunning bracelet.
All of our new items will be on a special offer until the 7th of January!
