The Single Hook Celtic Clasp KF287 holds three strands of freshwater pearls using three figure 8 loops. ML167. One comes with the clasp and the loops can be purchased in pairs. Another option to this necklace would have been to use a cone to gather the three strands at the loop end.
This three strand necklace of multiple shapes of onyx and bicone swarovski crystal is collected to a single strand by a pair of Single Hook Celtic Clasps KF287. The strand in the back is terminated by ML167 figure 8 loops. The three strand necklace and the single strand can be used separately.
The two Celtic Single Loop Clasps KF287 are connected with a single ML167 figure 8 loop to make a shorter necklace.
The single strand with the two ML167 loops is connected to the Double Celtic Hook KF286 to make a bracelet. The Double Celtic Hook can easily be moved from strand to strand and can easily connect multiple strands in a piece.
Another issue I have had is a collection of beautiful flat back beads and cabachons that have been sitting in my stash. I wanted to create something that would allow them to be used and moved from piece to piece. After creating the Gingko and Leaf Clips I thought that it would be great to create a similar clip that would allow me to move a favorite pendant from piece to piece easily and allow me to enhance a favorite necklace multiple ways.
The Oval Bail Clip KF290 is connected to a large teardrop shaped cabachon. In this case E6000 was used to connect the bail to the stone.
A beaded kumihimo strand is enhanced by the ceramic pendant that is connected using the Rectangular Bail Clip KF289
The Chartres Spiral KF205 can be easily connected to any pendant using either the Oval KF290 or Rectangle KF289 bail clip
