How to Bead a Peyote Tube to Cover Magnetic Clasps

Magnetic clasps are wonderful - especially the really strong ones - but they also have their downside.  They stick to metallic objects and hey presto, your bracelet becomes undone! And not everyone can wear metal clasps either due to allergies or other skin reactions.  So Marion of Jewels in Fiber, who sells kumihimo bracelet kits, demonstrated in a series of blog posts how to bead a peyote tube to cover magnetic clasps. Problem solved.

She has 4 peyote sleeve tube tutorials where the beaded rectangles are zipped up.  She uses different types of beads:

  1. What a great - and pretty - idea!

  2. Peyote tubes have been on my to-do list for quite a while to use as just beads. Covering simple looking magnetic clasps with them makes for a pretty focal. I am not sure how this is going to prevent the clasp from opening but it's a good reason to try :)

    1. The beaded tube doesn't prevent the clasp from opening - only a strong magnetic can reduce the chances of that happening. But the tube cover the clasp beautifully!
