    I put a clasp on nearly all of my necklaces, even the really long ones. I find my customes like the versitilty a clasp on a long necklace gives. Some of my necklaces can be worn wrapped 3 times round the neck, but only if a clasp is on the necklace.

    Anything that is a squeeze - clasp it.

    Anything that is long enough to fit easily over a bouffant hairdo of Marie Antoinette proportions, don't

    If you're not sure, then clasp it - that way, the customer has the choice

    Great, thanks.I feel its a nicer way to finish a necklace, I will have to master a nice neat crimp and cover on any longer necklaces I attempt to make.
    Not looking forward to it as I feel there will be a gap where the wire can be seen as Id have to get the crimper in the small area.

    if in doubt CLASP!

    unless the necklaces are 30"+ then I alsways clasp. they still have the option then to just pop it over their head!

    To clasp or not to clasp..

    Ive been making necklaces that are longer than the usual 15" that I make, some are kind of long enough to put over the head without it needing a clasp tho it would be a squeeze.
    Plus I have it in my head that ladies do thier hair, then may remeber they want to wear a necklace and its easier to put on a snug necklace with a clasp rather than squeeze it on ruining their hair.

    My question is, at what length would you stop putting a clasp in the necklace?
