This copper toggle clasp has been completely handmade and etched with a Japanese spoke pattern design. A circle is cut to accommodate the toggle, which has been forged from 1.5mm / 15 gauge copper wire. The shape of the toggle is created by hammering, pinching and manipulating the wire with pliers, then hammered to flatten and curve formed in a cupola die: The clasp is formed from .7mm / 21 gauge sheet copper and is formed with a cupola and die to give it its wonderful curved shape. The underside is finished to a mirror polish and bears no pattern. Attached with 1mm / 18 gauge jump rings.
clasp size is 2cm x 2cm (3/4inch x 3/4 inch)

Whilst a large portion of the items found in this store are designed to be used by and incorporated into the work of other makers, the designs of the individual components are ©Anna McDade. Other makers are free to use beads, buttons, findings and components bought from myself in their own designs for personal or resale purposes. Although not essential, I am keen to see how my pieces have been incorporated into the work of others and would love to see the creative works of other makers.
