Fun with clasps and toggles!

August 4, 2019

Clay Day 28th July  

 

We had a super day on Sunday learning all about clasps, closures, toggles, hooks – you name it - with all the demos by our lovely members.

 

Ann showed us how to create intricate wire clasps (which she claimed were quite easy really), Ruth showed a selection of simple link closures and toggles and even I managed to finish one of these!

 

Following this Theresa’s embedded magnets were a hit, with one new member, who does not have pierced ears, discovering that the magnets were strong enough to hold earrings together through her ear lobe. Who knew? Finally, Jude demonstrated how to make wire pins for a large “statement” brooch.

The show and tell table was loaded with wonderful creations together with ideas for closures created by members.

 

It was, as always, a fun and convivial day and we were delighted to be joined by some new members.

 

As always we are looking forward to our next Clay Day on 29th September when Clare McKnight will be giving us intriguing ideas for Christmas – and we will all have three months to make them!
