I had been looking for nice looking, larger lobster style clasps and this worked very well in my project.
Desribed as 'hefty', but it is not heavy or clunky. Beautiful finish, medium weight with an easy-working trigger. I used a silver one in a 'mock lariat' design with Artbeads.com's pewter ring PS-LX047. I plan to make similar designs with this one. Your product photographs are right on, Artbeads!
Sturdy & handsome clasp for a large bead or heavy necklace.
am a beginning beader & bought this to try and 'extend' a beautiful, large 14k yellow gold figaro bracelet that's a bit too tight. figured for the price it was worth it rather than taking it to a jeweler for a $$$$ cost.
i am so pleased. the clasp itself is very well-made and heavy enough to "fit" with the "real" gold so the bracelet doesn't twist around my wrist. the color is a perfect match! not enough time to rate the plating quality, but i sure can buy a load of these for what a jeweler would charge, particularly at the cost of gold! and the 'repair' only took me a couple minutes.
do not hesitate!
