  • fastenings for children's jewellery

    Hi,
    I'm selling at a church bazaar next week and at my local school fete so I'm looking at making some cheap kids jewellery. I am making some necklaces using seed beads and some great glow in the dark beads threaded on tiger tail, what is the best clasp to use?
    I was thinking of using magnetic clasps and have seen some on beads unlimited, has anyone used these and are they any good?
    thanks

    Hi! I have used magnetic clasps for children's necklaces and as long as they're quite strong, they work well! I have used some from Beads Direct, they were sp I think, and quite 'squat', so the magnets had quite a large surface area and they worked just fine!

      The magnetic clasps are great, they tend to be quite pricey though.

        Magnetic clasps are not going to be the cheapest for kids jewellery. I'd use some bolt rings, much cheaper. Or making them long so they go over the head, and use no clasp.

        I find that magnetic clasps work well for necklaces but not for bracelets, they catch on everything and anything.

          I love the magnetic clasps for kids jewellery. I bought some off ebay a while ago, they worked out cheaper than anywhere else i've seen them. It was an ebay shop, cindyrella shop 2008.
