For the Makers 411: Clasps

FOR THE MAKERS 411: CLASPS

We broke out our dog-eared copy of Theory and Practice of Goldsmithing for this one. There are a million and one clasps out there. Some use friction, some tension, some are simple and some are insanely complicated. Pick the right one and your collection of vintage lockets won’t fall off and through the crack in between the elevator and the floor never to be seen again. (sigh)

Happy clasping!
