gold vermeil hardware / elizabethcraneswartz.comI found these simple round clasps at the beginning of this year and have been dying to string something special on them. my 5/8" wooden beads are about the same size so it seemed like a no-brainer to put them together. I think you'll agree they're the perfect pairing for these choker-style necklaces. each necklace features eighty one hand painted beads and 14k gold filled findings and these stunning gold vermeil clasps.gold vermeil hardware / elizabethcraneswartz.comgold vermeil hardware / elizabethcraneswartz.comgold vermeil hardware / elizabethcraneswartz.compictured from top to bottom: the 'lulu' three strand necklace available here, the coral hued 'abby' here and the always popular 'libby' here. all three are in the shop!gold vermeil hardware / elizabethcraneswartz.com
