A lobster claps is kind of lock. Sometimes it’s called trigger catch or trigger clasp. You could find them in silver and gold plated, and they are also available in different sizes. Personally, I find this type of clasp easy to use as I can easily wear a bracelet and hook up the clasp on my own, using one hand.

Now, this is the star on today’s jewelry making tutorial. I’ve used a multi-row claps on many of my jewelry making projects and I like it very much, especially that when I created a necklace for my pet Chihuahua it turned out like a chocker. Some multi-row clasp with only three holes and there could be many as five holes. And because there are several holes on the clasp, it gives you a way to string multi-rows of beads like how Reem, one of our team designers did this funky looking bracelet.

50 x 0.6cm dia black beads 2 sizes of chains (small and large) 4 small pendants of your choice 1 big pendant of your choice for your focal piece 2 multi-row clasps/multi-slot clips 2 x 50cm (20 inches) Silk thread Jump rings Lobster clasp
