I love the idea of the clasp for Cameron Diaz and agree on wearing ethically sourced jewelry! check out http://www.designjewelry.com/
for jewelry handmade in america and ethically sourced :)

I would choose this clasp
https://www.claspgarten.com/index.php?action=detail&item=13939-03-06-00-a10
with the siam red center stone and make choker with big baroque pearls (the bigger the better to spice up Penelope Cruz' dress (she is smokin' hot in that outfit!)
Thanks for the fun Miss Madge! I have signed up to receive their information. Looks like a great assortment of clasps they offer. Wonder if they will be at Bead & Button?
Enjoy the day!

I would love to design a necklace for Kristen Stewart. I would do a something with multiple sizes of clear swarovski crystals and use several of these clasps instead of spacers... https://www.claspgarten.com/index.php?action=detail&item=13586-01-25-00-001
I would make it a necklace and a bracelet and make it so that it so that they could be put together to make a longer necklace for another occasion.

p.s. Forgot to say that I would also use the clasp as a focal point/pendant, so it would be front and center!

I love all the clasps on this site. Few things make me smile as much as a beautiful clasp (bead nerd much?)

I think Rachel McAdams looked absolutely beautiful at the Oscars. You can find her picture here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/03/07/oscars-2010-red-carpet-ph_n_489312.html#s72736

I would design a piece that included this silver clasp: https://www.claspgarten.com/index.php?action=detail&item=14007-01-06-0p-001

I think the yellowish pearl accent of the clasp complements the faint yellow sections of the dress beautifully. The overall shape of the clasp would serve to emphasize the sweetheart neckline quite well. I would pair the clasp with a simple strand of freshwater pearls so as not to distract from either the dress or the clasp, and I would design it such that the necklace hit just below the collarbone.

I chose to use MAGGIE GYLLENHAAL's
blue dress:
http://img.skitch.com/20100308-mn1psi8n8g3n5cgfpjcm8jjk8a.jpg

I see the Claspgarten clasp:
https://www.claspgarten.com/index.php?action=detail&item=14322-02-25-00-a01

It is a marcasite styled clasp with 2 sapphire colored crystals. The clasp will allow 2 strands and I see the 2 strands each made in the same order using 6-8 mm cobalt blue Swarovski crystals alternating with Swarovski cream or white color pearls with 4mm AB crystals between each. The length difference in the two strands will automatically offset the color placement. I would show the clasp offset to the side intentionally. I would also make earrings that would be very long single strand. ( almost shoulder dusters)with the same alternating Swarovski Cobalt blue,AB crystals and Swarovski pearls.

I am definitely checking them out! A pretty clasp makes all the difference. And wouldn't it be sweet if they ditched the diamonds in favor of supporting local homegrown artists? How do we get a chunk of that pie? I know that it is not DeBeers or anything, but wearing a one of a kind Margot Potter or Erin Prais-Hintz would be infinitely more interesting! I didn't see the Oscars or the red carpet (gasp!) but have seen all sorts of the good bad and ugly out there (dresses I mean, not starlets). I think that using crystals, particularly vintage Swarovskis would be a definite must. Thanks for sharing a great resource! Enjoy the day! Erin

I think anything with a "Steampunk/Beadpunk" Look with multiple strands of Lavender pearls. Like Swarovski new pearl color!

2010-03-12T09:07:47.975-08:00

Vera Farmiga's was my favourite of all the Oscar dresses http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_FW86_jO7k_A/S5StExWvA1I/AAAAAAABk_8/5qbdYticm6U/s1600-h/Vera%2BFarmiga%2B1.jpg.

I'd use this clasp https://www.claspgarten.com/catalog/14710-05-06-00-502.jpg and make a multistrand choker with matching Swarovski crystals (I think the colour is fuchsia).

I'd wear the choker with the clasp at the front, but off-centre to compliment the asymmetry of the dress.

I was also bemused by the lack of jewellery at the Oscars - pile it on I say!

first of all, when i went to the claspgarten site, they had a quote from you about your satisfaction with their products. sweet!

don't know how good i am at this game, but i'll play!

remove the bracelet and add this clasp:

honestly, my favorite clasps were the ones you already used in your examples, but that's ok! :)
