Hammered ClaspI am a sucker for textured, hammered, twisted, tortured wire. I love it, the whole rustic look. I was first exposed to the whole concept when I was looking at a website by Connie Fox of www.jatayu.com.
This clasp is best made from 1.00 mm (18 gauge) or thicker wire and is easy to make if you have a few tools around the place: ball pein hammer, round needle nose pliers, flat needle nose pliers, fine metal file and steel plate or concrete to hammer against.
