I agree that she is referring to a lobster claw clasp. One of the things that I would definitely change is to switch out the split rings for jump rings. I don't like split rings. I think they make a piece look less professionally finished. I was a little iffy about doubling up the chain around the ring, too, but it looks nice.

She definitely does her wrapped loops a bit differently than my method and I couldn't imagine even attempting to bead with long nails like that. I would never be able to do it!

I couldn't even see the clasp in the video. I am to pretty sure it is the same as a lobster claw clasp.

Hello, Sharon!!!!!

It is funny, but I had the same doubts about the lobester claw. Thanks for the information.

There's nothing wrong with using the word "diet". It comes from the Greek word "diaita", meaning way of life. So to lose weight and keep it off we need to change our way of life.

Thanks for this, Ellen. The artist said she was going to use a "trigger" clasp. I never heard that term but guessed it would be the same as what I call a "lobster claw". I did some research and the two terms do refer to the same kind of clasp.
