So, I made a patchwork cloak in a private swap, and I also made a cloak clasp (because what good is a cloak you can't close?) I used dollar store clear and white glass stones, layered with a brick red stone I got at a local bead store. I kind of really liked the red stone, as the cloak was meant to be Harry Potter inspired - and the shape of the bead with the gold wire through it reminded me of the symbol for the Deathly Hallows.

This is the clasp together.

One side.

And the other.

You guys can't even understand how amazing this in in person. It's so intricate and gives the perfect amount of weight to the front.
