To pretty for my clasps?

I made this "filled net" bracelet to illustrate a post on Manekis Pärlblogg. Because of that I just used what beads I could find enough of, hoping to find a colour of seed beads that would match the 4 mm rounds. The result was this silver-lined "padparadscha" grid (7-drop netting) with pearlcoated beads in creme, soft red and green. A lighter version of the Christmas colours.

My only problem right now is that I can't choose what clasp to use... None of my clasps or buttons feel right and I don't fancy making a seedbeaded one. Hopefully I'll get some inspiration soon.

*UPDATE* I ended up doing a "bead and loop" closure, using a beaded bead type of thing made with the same beads as in the netting.
