Did you buy a bracelet a bit too small? Or had a bit of a size increase, like me? Then buy a clasp that extends the bracelet size by a bead. Or buy 2!
The also add some lovely silver shine to the bracelet. The photo shows the two types available. The smaller (straight vertical lines – left in photo) can be used for nuggets, 8 or 10mm beads. The larger (spiral pattern – right in photo) can do 8 or 10 mm beads. We have a similar shaped to the vertical lines … but they have stars on them (no photo).
These work better on the stronger clear elastic. However regardless it will reduce the life of the elastic. You can buy extra 2m of clear elastic and re-string when needed.
Also you must ensure you close the clasp with the elastic definitely in the centre and not get caught in the closure.
