This sterling silver hook & eye clasp features a true-to-life textured snake head and tail design, creating an eye-catching clasp suited for bold necklace and bracelet designs. The design is oxidized to intensify the three-dimensional detailing; when closed, the snake seems to hold its tail in its mouth. A tie-off bar inside the tail (hook) and head (eye) components allows you to quickly and easily complete your design. Add an oval jump ring to create space around the clasp, if needed.
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.
