Part 1 of 2
Don`t you just hate trying to put on a bracelet in the morning? You probably haven't had coffee yet so the caffeine hasn't kicked in. The end of the bracelet keeps slipping away from you. Frustrating.
There are solutions - bracelet fastening tools. While there are some commercial ones you can buy, here is one great DIY version.
Judy Markwell over at the Beading Emporium came up with a simple tool you can make for yourself using an alligator clip, a chopstick and a bit of wire! Neat! Chopsticks come in pairs so there is another you can make for a gift.
You can also decorate the chopsticks like those on in my past post, Beaded Wire Wrapped Flatware Inspirations.
