This sterling silver hook & eye clasp features a sleek, square design and is an ideal choice for creating a unique clasp that has no moving parts for necklace and bracelet designs. Each half of the clasp features a slit on its side that allows the two components to interlock, making it a secure closure for strung and fabricated designs. A hook & eye clasp is a two-part clasp that closes by simply sliding the hook and eye together. 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. Each package includes 2 pieces (one clasp).
• 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.
