**Reiny**, Wednesday, September 23, 2009 at 9:48pmThis type of problem always leads to a lively discussion.

Problem: can the beads be moved past the claps ?

If so, does moving one or more beads from one side to the other without opening the clasp constitute a different necklace?

The general answer to that is no.

(Think of some keys on a keyring.

Flipping the keys around on the ring does not produce a different keyring arrangement, nor does turning the keyring over, only opening the ring itself will produce a new keychain. )

So here is my solution:

Use one of the beads as a "marker", then the others can be arranged in 11! ways.

We then have to divide by 2 to eliminate the opposite order of beads which would not be a new necklace

so I would say: 11!/2
