    I have Anna's book too! A proud addition to my jewelry/pearl books collection!
    I got one copy for my Russian friend as well, I was lucky to find it, as they are all sold out!

      Masik, thanks for posting that Rio Grande clasp; I like that one, and missed it ... off to look it up at Rio!

          These are my favorite clasps.
          One of them (the bottom one) is from Claspgarten, it's a German brand more popular amongst beaders than higher end jewelry stores.

            These are very nice, love the bottom one for its ability to hold several strands...these are hard to find!

                LOVE that you attached those 3 strands to that sparkly clasp with more lobster claw clasps, Pareltje!

                  That did explain it. I have been looking for clasps like that one (the feature) and I rarely -if ever- found one. This explains it clearly
                  And I love what you did with the lobster claws! It is very convenient! You sure know a lot of handy tricks.

                    I have a project in my mind. I'd like to string 3 strands of tiny pearls and finish each of the 3 with the lobster clasps on both ends. I can repurpose one of them by attaching it to my mask as a "holder" so that I always remember to put on my mask when I go shopping, to the physiotherapist, etc (oh the joy of Covid! Mask is obligatory here and adding pearls in an excuse to wear them in a different style).

                      O dear Lord! Yes...things have surely changed with COVID and masks...but no reason not to try and make them look more fashionable! Been thinking of adding pearls to mine...but I am constantly losing them!

                        I got some cheap card-maker half pearls (fakes) with a sticky base and arranged them over my masks- you could follow me around by the trail as they fell off!

                              I love a good clasp ! And they are so hard to find ! The Orbit is a go to clasp. Initially I found them a bit slippery and hard to open but I might have had a very stiff one. I''m loving that little Rio Clasp. And of course Paraltje - The Daisys.... sigh
                              So many beautiful old bejeweled clasps ... you guys have a sharp eye on eBay and auction sites!!

                                I wish we could convince some Orbit Clasp maker to branch out a bit ... different texture of gold, ROSE gold, some tiny gem or engraving accents. Sigh, I'm sure that's too much to hope for ...
