I wanted something special so I made a three strand bracelet with gold-filled beads and a special clasp that I bought at the Bead Faire with 14K gold plated sterling silver. The three to one connector and the three holed dividing links are gold plated. That's all I had and I couldn't wait to order gold-filled and probably couldn't afford it anyway. One day I will replace them.
I am very pleased with the way it turned out and love the way it flatters my wrist.
