Everyone needs a little closure…especially when making jewelry! Why not make it beautiful?
In this e-course I’ll show you how to create unique and versatile closures. You’ll learn to create several different hook and eye style closures including my favorite “go to” clasps…super strong and super beautiful.
Ever want to make your own toggle clasps? I'll show you how.
We’ll be creating stacked loop and button closures with layers of metal, mica, paper, beads, fabric and pre-drilled found objects.
I’ll also show you how to incorporate those gorgeous vintage rhinestone clasps into your work.
To take it one step further, I’ll show various ways to make end connectors for leather, rubber and even rhinestone chain…a very handy skill to know.
This class will grow your jewelry making expertise and give you a multitude of unique and inspiring options for finishing your pieces.

- shaping, forming, filing
