Stitch-In Link and Magnetic Clasp ~
With the huge popularity of seed beads and shaped beads it came to our attention a couple of years ago that there was a need for easy-to-use and attractive ending components for beadwork designs. Our product development team took the concept on enthusiastically! The result (to start) is the pretty two-sided Oasis Stitch-in Link and the gorgeous Temple Stitch-in Magnetic Clasp. Both were created with great love and care! The bead-style loops are designed to be stitched to the beadwork as part of the pattern, providing a secure ending and nicely hidden beading thread. The loops are 6mm apart to allow for use with a wide variety of bead sizes and types.
Oasis Stitch-in Link - two sided for versatility!
Temple Stitch-in Magnetic Clasp - tested and secure hold!
The possibilities working with these parts were truly inspiring!
We tested them with numerous styles of beads: CzechMates of all shapes, DiamonDuos and GemDuos, Tilas and Half-Tilas, size 8 and size 11 seed beads, and more!
Note that the Hammertone finish example in the above image is a prototype only. During product development for this group the creativity was positively bubbling, and these two final parts were certainly not the only ones on the workbench. Many other ideas and designs were developed, and and we hope to add new items down the road. In the meantime, we hope these inspire you!
