This clasp has a decently heavy weight to it. I don't think it's simply a thin, plated brass stamping.
It's a rather unique size... perhaps too big for many small designs yet too small for many big designs. I suppose it would work well for a heavyweight bracelet.
I weave Shawlettes and these are perfect for closure on knitted or woven items.
It may seem odd to add a hook and eye closure but it is perfect for my craft
These clasps are just beautiful and make lovely closures for my 19th century era capes that I make. Gives them that special touch!
I usually don't use anything but a beaded toggle for my work but his was purchased for a project using coated wire so I needed a metal closer. I was surprised to find this one. It is elegant and feminine. It is rather large so make sure it fits what you are making. It made my project have a great fiinished look and as usual Artbead has the best prices and no shipping!
