Magnetic closures


Let me start by saying I was never a big fan of magnetic closures until my Mom asked me to add one to a necklace for her. What a great little invention! I have been using them more often on my own jewelry and incorporating into my designs. I was always a toggle or lobster clasp gal until I bought a 10 pack to use for her (less expensive per piece). I didn't realize how much of a hassle putting on a bracelet was until I put on my Delicate and Raku for a size and comfort check and what a surprise! No muss no fuss! These things are great, no more "Hey hon, can you help me out here....." feeling all of my 40 “somethingness”. Check them out for yourself-

Hi, Diane!

Just a bit of a caution re: the magnetic closures....

Do not use if you have a pacemaker or certain other medical devices.

Do not use around computer hard drives and other sensitive magnetic based data storage (like cassette tapes, if anybody still has those...).

Do not wear bracelets with magnetic clasps when working with pins, needles, and other such crafts' supplies-- you end up with a "few" unplanned "charms" if you do!!

Great work on hte eSMArts treasuries, and very nice jewelry, too!
