Clasps

I buy most of my clasps at shows, so I couldn't really tell you who I get them from since I don't pay enough attention! But there is one online source that I really like and recommend ~ Star's Clasps

Over the years I've learned the hard way not to use cheaply made findings, especially clasps. I like vintage materials, and sometimes will have to work a bit to recondition a vintage clasp so that it's usable. My recommendation ~ don't ruin hours of good work with inadequate findings. It's easy to think that you're going to save money by buying the inexpensive ones, but there's usually a good reason that they're inexpensive!
