Anklet/Ankle Cuff clasp problem

I've made an anklet that's pretty wide, but I'm having trouble finding a good clasp for it.

Right now I'm using a tube/slide clasp, but my wife says it rubs a bit too much.

I'm hoping for some suggestions.

Danke! Uber

Hmmm.

Magnetic clasps are good for bracelets, I reckon they'd be good for anklets as well. They are less fiddly, and enable the jewellery to fit more snugly than other clasps would require, since you don't need any wriggle-room for the clasp opening/closure.

You could use a spacer (I think that's what they're called) to reduce the N-rings-wide band to just one, and attach the clasp to that. Or you could use two clasps, putting one at the top of the band and one at the bottom, like I did with my Elements Bracelet; I actually did both things with that, using a hand-made spacer to reduce the five-rings-wide to two for the clasps.


Craft isn't cheaper than therapy, but it's more fun.

Maybe a few bayonet clasps would be an option.

Here is a great clasp that I like to use on wide European bracelets. It is a really close fit and comfortable.
