Item details

This jewelry clasp in carved bone has a simple design and clean lines that are sure to add extra character to a custom beaded necklace.

Crafted exclusively for Indounik in Bali, Indonesia, the clasp fits together in a hook and eyelet arrangement best seen in the second and third photos. (Click on the arrrow on the right or left of the image to scroll through the different shots.)

Please note that this clasp should not be considered as a secure fastener for valuable beads. While each of the two pieces is sturdy and unlikely to break, the hook and eyelet come apart relatively easily. You may choose to back them up with a safety chain.

PayPal is my preferred method of payment. Don't have an account? You can use your credit card to pay if you click on the PayPal icon at checkout and follow the prompts.

AT A GLANCE
Size: The hook is approx 22mm (L) x 10mm (W) and the eyelet is approx 10mm (L) x 9mm (W). Please see my final two photos for a better idea about their proportions.
Thickness: Approx 2mm
Pieces per pack: 2 - one hook and one eyelet that fit together
Colour: White, ivory or cream colour depending on the age and density of the bone used to create the pieces. Each of the two pieces that make up the clasp will be colour matched as much as possible.
Material: Bovine bone - cow bone. The material used in Indounik products is sourced from the neighbouring Indonesian island of Java where it's a bi-product of the meat industry.
Shipping: This item will be shipped from Ubud, Bali, via Pos Indonesia registered mail with a tracking number, and you will almost certainly need to sign for the package upon delivery.

BACK STORY
Crafting beautiful ornaments and jewelry pieces from animal bone is a time-honoured tradition among many of the world's cultures, including several of the diverse ethnic groups scattered through the vast Indonesian archipelago.

Delicately hand-carved pieces come alive in the hands of talented artisans such as those found on the island of Bali.

The carvers carry on ancestral traditions in their creations, with sons inheriting skills from their fathers.
