I would never use it, but it's so great, I thought I'd share it. Not sure how to link to it, but this is the item description. The seller is pamtom96. and before anyone asks, I have no clue who it is, and have no financial interests in them. I just thought it could be awesome for someone that works in that style.
The top section with the little round button gizmo pulls upwards which unlocks it. The next section (second) down and the bottom (fourth) section are attached to one end of the bracelet and the third section down is attached to the opposite side of the bracelet. To operate the locking you pull the top portion up until it clears section three and then push it down. The prongs (which you can see in the photo) go down through all the sections and holds the bracelet on. If I owned this bracelet, I'd have a safety chain on the opening, and you can see that this clasp is a bit wonky. Nice bracelet though, filigree is either really nice or beat to death because they are so fragile. Donna
Looking at it now, I see what I missed last night. On closer inspection, the filigree is NOT part of the clasp, I thought it was. Duh........... Note to self: No searching when over tired
well TC, opening bid is like $10.........so a person who wanted a truly cool clasp could take the clasp and one section to each side and use that as a clasp and have a real wowser. The bracelet overall had some problems being bent up a bit, which only means it has been worn. The problems it has could be carefully re-bent back into shape.
Yep, late night searches will to that to you. I try to do any searching early in the day.......LOL while my two brain cells are still functioning. Interesting, because I get some real productive beading done late at night when I guess I get my second brain storm going. Donna
What a lovely bracelet! I am a beginner and would like to be able to manufacture something like that myself one day! So far, I have gained ideas from the cool art prints I found online. They show floral patterns, clothes or just some funny structures I might be able to bead myself one day. Specifically, I'd love to make pictures with these Nerd Owls which I found on a poster. Really sweet for kids.
I'm extraordinarily patient provided I get my own way in the end.
