Back as Front

IMG_3345While I was out and about recently, I overheard a conversation where someone said that something always had to be done a certain way.  I started to wonder about this as it relates to jewelry.  Was there any reason why clasps always had to go in back?

I was nearly finished with this bead crochet rope, so thought I’d try a little experimentation.  What if the clasp went in the front?

Besides having the advantage of being able to see what you’re doing with the clasp to the front, it provides an interesting focal.  Of course, no namby pamby clasp will do, something with a bit of oomph is required.  Oomph.  One of those artistic terms.

The rope is bead crochet, using 5º clear AB triangles and variegated thread.  The thread shades from leaf green to lime – bright on it’s own, but lovely when covered with beads.  Silver caps and green crystals complete the piece.
