*** Bronze Clasp Giveaway! ***

As I promised in this post, I'd be giving away some fabulous bronze toggles from Na Bo Row.  I purchased these because I know many of you are awesome designers wondering what to do about the rising cost of sterling silver, and these bronze toggles are one, unique, and two, if you're not normally a sterling person, they just might catapult you into a new metal.


So without further ado, let me show you what I found for you! Three separate people will win one toggle -- so there will be three winners (I knew I could do math!).


Aren't they awesome???

If you want these in sterling silver rather than bronze, you can visit their web site and the exact same toggles (plus more!) are there.  For example, here's a bracelet I made with one of their toggles and some of their beads....



To win -- you know the drill.

Post below, with a way to contact you (blog or email).
Feel free to tell others!

Winner will be announced 
Sunday, May 15th!


(Next giveaway will be after Bead and Button,
when I'll be joyfully shopping for you again!)

  8. Lovely bracelet and fun clasps. I like toggle clasps the best, they're the easier to undo on your own.
