This piece was fun to make. Didn't get caught up in the monotony of making the same beads over and over. Although I'd heard that they let loose fairly easy when you use them on necklaces, I used a magnetic clasp. This one held tightly. I decided to wear it the night I made it. It got caught on the shirt I was changing into - the clasp didn't let loose but a poorly crimped bead did. Never even made it out of the house! I'll be restringing that shortly.
