Have you ever closely observed how your anklet or bracelet fastens around your wrist or ankle? Have you noticed the way the two ends are held together using different locking mechanism or clasps? Well, if you love jewelry, then you probably would have. Various clasps are used to fasten jewelry, and some of them are more common, if not exclusive, to only a particular piece of jewelry. For example, lobster clasps are far more common on necklaces than on bracelets and anklets.
Serious problems surfaced when finishing the piece. Doing it by the book entails simply curving the sheet, and filing away at the excess solder, in theory it produces the contours and you are ready to finish with sand paper. In practice you will find that after filing, the sandpaper cannot undo the file marks because the file created many canyons in the sheet, and made it bumpy!
That was fundamental. Now, beads and other findings; I would recommend you place them inside your bead storage boxes. The boxes can be placed inside the scrapbook shelves where you can have them always at a quick glance. For their organization, I would advise you to go in terms of colors; not shape or sizes. Each unique color would allow you to determine where the particular bead that you need is. It works in this way that when youre deciding to make a piece youre always going to start with imagining a color. First you are sure of a color then youre likely to go for a type and size. It works the other way as well in some cases, but mostly this way happens.
The Hamesh hand or Hamsa hand is a popular motif in Jewish jewelry. Arab cultures often refer to it as the Hand of Fatima, which represents the Hand of G-d. The Hamsa serves as an ancient talismanic way of averting the evil eye and providing a "protecting hand" or "Hand of God". The Hamsa appears often in stylized form, as a hand with three fingers raised, and sometimes with two thumbs arranged symmetrically. The symbol is used in amulets, charms, jewelry, door entrances, cars, and other places to ward the evil eye.
