This sterling silver hook & eye clasp features contemporary contours with rounded surfaces and a smooth, bright finish. The clasp provides an elegant finish for beaded or fabricated necklaces and bracelets. The hook and eye each have a hole for tying off your strand. A hook & eye clasp is a two-part clasp that closes by simply sliding the hook through the eye. This clasp tends to be larger than other clasp types and is ideal for larger designs, bead strands or bib-style necklaces; it relies on the necklace having enough weight to keep the clasp secure.
• Overall length indicates the length added to your strand by the clasp.
• IMPORTANT: Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling findings by keeping them in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store sterling findings in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
