September 2011 Clasp Challenge

For this challenge no part of the closure could be pre-made. This meant that  any hooks, buttons or other closing mechanisms had to be designed and constructed by the maker - not a piece of cake! In addition, this challenge was judged - a first. Employees of Artbeads judged the entries and Artbeads provided a prize for the lucky winner whose design was chosen for its originality and unique creative spirit.

And the WINNER is... Diana Schmidt!
