Lobster clasps are too difficult to open for many people.

May I say something to all the fantastical jewelry designers out there?

There are millions of us baby boomers and we LOVE to buy hand made jewelry.

A lot of us are experiencing carpal tunnel and arthritis in our hands.

The types of closures make a HUGE difference in whether someone might buy or not.

Toggle clasps are one type of closure that can be much more user-friendly for many jewelry wearers.

I can no longer open lobster claps, and have had to pass on purchasing some lovely pieces in the past 3 years.

Yet, designers are still putting these clasps on, which need thumbs to contort into painful positions.

Thanks Rena for all the years of fabulous blogs!
