All of your bracelets are beautiful!  Did you use a magnetic clasp?  I have found magnetic clasps to be a little tricky and come undone, sometimes.  It looks like you may have used a safety chain.  What type of wire is used?  thanks.

No magnets here. The silver "LOVE" bead is actually the clasp. The end of the chain (male end) goes into the open bead which closes down onto it. The chain is a very thick snake like chain.

I can't seem to quite understand the love bead clasp concept.  If I were looking for this type of clasp, what would it be called.  What type of wire did  you use?

I didn't use a wire, I used a snake like chain.
The clasp is attached to one end of the chain. It opens up and you just insert the tip of the bracelet into it and snap shut.

They are very much like Pandora bracelets, just not Pandora  Wink
