These one of a kind clasps are made from bronze metal clay. The bronze is a beautiful rich deep golden color. Each is less than an inch long.
I have them at this introductory price because I want to see if there is any demand. First come first served.
Please let me know if you want the bigger one or the smaller one.
I can leave it in this "rough" state or I can spray with a lacquer sealant. Without the sealant, it can be easily polished and shined up. With the sealant, the color and patina will be protected however may rub off depending on how well worn the clasp is.
Definitely one of a kind clasps.
A little info about this process
The bronze I use is metal clay. It is a clay base infused with tiny tiny particles of bronze embedded within it. When fired at extremely high temperatures, the clay burns off and the bronze bonds together forming a solid bronze item. This metal process is also available in fine silver, gold, and copper as well as various other metals. These clays are fun, exciting and creative mediums. Each item is one of a kind, made by me in my Franklin, Tennessee studio!
