Magic to Craft: 52 Sweet Spells No. 15- Sweet Biscuits With Chocolate Brooch

This was originally going to be a hair accessory, but in the end I decided it would make a cute brooch. I don't have nearly enough brooches, but I have lots of hair accessories and necklaces, so I plan to focus on making more brooches as well as bracelets.

I recently bought some really pretty toggle clasps for making bracelets. I made a pearl one with the clasp, but it broke the first day I wore it. It didn't even get caught on anything, the clasp simply broke in half. I'm very disappointed because the clasps were not cheap. The circle side of the clasp is still intact, it was the bar that broke, so I will probably use that part as a pendant for a necklace.
