These Silver Filled Clasps are perfect for the jewelry designer who is looking for the PERFECT Alternative to Sterling Silver!

They are easy to hook and un-hook with one hand and yet they hold securely.

They were hand forged by me from 18 gauge silver filled wire and due to their hand crafting, vary slightly. These measure 12mm X 7mm with some slight variation as each one is made by hand. This listing includes a matching Figure Eight Catch Ring which measure 10mm X 8mm. Together they measure 20mm X 7mm.

They are made from 18 gauge SILVER FILLED Wire. What is "SILVER FILLED"?
-meets the same legal requirement of "gold filled" as it is 10% sterling silver which is bonded to a white brass core...this is 30x's thicker than any silver plate
-it is half hard and will work harden
-the white brass core is barely noticeable
-tarnishes, oxidized, polishes just like sterling silver
-can be hammered, soldered, textured
-has the identical look and feel of sterling silver
-is HALF the price of sterling silver
-is Made in the USA

I have been looking for alternatives to solid sterling silver every since it went over $20 an ounce last fall. I offer several; stainless steel, fine silver with a copper core....and now Silver Filled!

I have tried OTHER Silver Filled wire and found them to have: visible copper core, soft, thin coating, inconsistent sizing, fragile
