Clasp feedback

After my blog on Thursday, I’ve received some really interesting feedback via Twitter and had people commenting on the blog as well (thanks Elaine from Nicholsons Jewellers). Julia Velling also emailed me with a really great comment and some pics so I thought I’d post them here too.

“I read with interest your blog on clasps this morning and have to say, I couldn’t agree more.  So many beautifully crafted pieces are well and truly let down by ugly, cheap looking clasps, which should be as much a part of the design of the jewellery as the piece itself. My husband, Jesper is a self-employed jewellery designer-maker, specialising in bespoke, handcrafted jewellery and he always gives thought to the clasp in both it’s designand practicality, wanting to make it as easy as possible for the wearer to use whilst either making it a design feature in itself or cleverly hiding it (please see image ‘twisty necklace’) even when people see it in the flesh they have great difficulty finding the clasp!  I thought you might be interested in some of his designs, all of which has been made for customers, and attach some images to this end.”

I hope that you do not mind the unsolicited approach but I thought you  might find this relevant to your blog.
