How DO they get that caramel into the Caramilk bar?
We believe the clasp for a necklace is a very important part to the finished product. You want it to be functional and easy to use, yet also blend in with the design. Some of the commercial clasps that are sold might look nice but are not very functional. I like a toggle or simple hook and loop closure myself but sometimes it isn’t the most feasible or comfortable.
The barrel clasp is good but usually quite awkward and difficult to handle as they are so small. So why not make a barrel clasp disguised as a bead? I went to work right away with my idea, hoping it would work. The first one was okay but there was room for improvement. After several tries we finally came up with a system that worked. Wow, it was really exciting when we unscrewed our first bead clasp and it worked perfectly! It was not only easier to handle but is also very comfortable to wear around the back of the neck.
Heh, so maybe we discovered how they got the caramel in the Caramilk bar after all!!??
