This Argentium® Silver lobster clasp features a teardrop shape and a closed attach ring; it is an ideal closure for one-of-a-kind bracelet and necklace designs. One of the most common clasp styles, the lobster clasp offers a streamlined look and good security for all types of strands. Named for its resemblance to the action of a lobster claw, this clasp features a hook shape with a spring-operated closure. Simply press the ring at the opposite end of the strand against the closure, pushing it open enough to let the ring pass onto the hook (or press the release lever to open the closure). The spring holds the clasp closed until the lever pulls it open to release the ring.
Made with a touch of germanium, Argentium® Silver presents a bright-white color that is closer to fine silver than traditional sterling, yet is highly resistant to firescale and less likely to tarnish under most conditions. It welds flawlessly and is ideal for fusing techniques. All Argentium is made from reclaimed silver and its sources are guaranteed by Argentium International Ltd. Your customers will appreciate the value and convenience of brighter-white sterling silver designs that resist tarnishing and keep on shining.
• Overall length indicates the length added to your strand by the clasp.
• Use care when soldering near springs or other movable mechanisms; the heat can damage these parts or alter the temper of the metal, reducing or destroying their effectiveness.
