About ArgusCollection

Sales 46,063
On Etsy since 2018

It started with a single clasp ... and grew like crazy!

ArgusCollection is a mother\daughter story. My youngest Quinn is a self-taught genius beader. She's profoundly deaf so she had to learn just from magazines and on-line videos. She was having so much fun with her creations and I was so worn out with my day job of writing non-fiction books that I thought I should join her. One bad bracelet led to another and I finally developed some skill of my own. But I found the selection of nice clasps challenging here in Canada and even in Florida where I live in the winter. I am in love with magnetic clasps but the Chinese ones weakened quickly and the quality was generally poor. I bought some Mag-lok clasps at a show in Florida and was hooked! Made in the USA, the Mag-lok quality is amazing. So I became a distributor. But the Magpie in me got me looking at other clasps. Happily, my husband is immensely patient as the boxes keep arriving. I now focus on high quality Claspgarten, TierraCast, JBB and other manufacturers. When Covid arrived, Quinn had just graduated in Food Sciences but there were no jobs to be had. She started helping me then ... took over! Quinn expanded vastly from clasps into her favorite beads including Delicas, SuperDuos, Les Perles par Puca and more. Then along came wire, thread, tools - you name it! Now Quinn is the boss and running a full fledged, full service on line bead store ... and loving it! Happy Shopping and Happy Creating.

    I started making jewelry 10 years ago to help pay my way through university. I never thought I would be able to turn my side hustle passion into a full time job. But here I am. And loving it.
