Most seed bead patterns make beautiful DIY jewelry, but did you know that they can be used to make jewelry tools? The Bar and Ring Toggle is a wonderful and elegant jewelry tutorial for anyone who wants their clasps to stand out in the crowd. It's also a great option for that annoying moment when you realize you're out of jewelry clasps for that elaborate necklace you worked on. This tutorial will show you how bead stitching is for far more than jewelry patterns.

Awesome tutorial! I've always attached a jump ring and metal clasp/toggle to my beaded bracelets and necklaces because I never liked the look of the beaded clasps. This one is absolutely gorgeous and one I'd happily put on my bracelets and necklaces. The directions make this look so easy with the step by step pictures! So much better then making the wire ones. Thank you so much for this free tutorial.
