COPPER HOOK & EYE, Handmade Hook Clasp, Choice of Patina Finishes

This listing is for one handcrafted Hook and Eye Clasp set. They are handforged by me, and each piece is slightly unique due to the handcrafting process. They are hammered from 14 gauge copper wire, tumbled to harden, and given the finish that you can choose. They are sealed to preserve the patina. The overall length is 2" to 2 1/2". This clasp is the perfect size for my large chains, which also come in the patina finishes listed here:

My newest patinas, developed to be a little more durable and less likely to flake or chip:

ANCIENT RELIC - designed to blend with my Melted Silver components, this patina has a deep oxidized based with a glaze or wash of silverleaf.
WABI-SABI - a Japanese phrase that roughly translates as "imperfect beauty". This patina starts with deeply oxidized copper, onto which layers of colors that range from yellow/green to rust to near white, with a whitewash effect. The overall look is of neutral tones, and this patina blends well with many of the colors found in nature and with most metals.
RIVER RUN - greens and blues blended on oxidized copper, then polished to highlight some of the copper, it brings to mind floating downstream with the sun glinting through leaves and blue sky onto moss covered rocks and crystal clear spring water.
COOKIES N CREAM - a deep oxidized brown base, with creamy white splashed about, polished to highlight some of the bright copper - this one is yummy!
LOVE NOTES - ruby, garnet and topaz on oxidized copper, polished to bring out bright copper highlights - looks like a Victorian Valentine.

TRADITIONAL PATINAS ARE A VARIABLE SURFACE TREATMENT - they are somewhat delicate and not meant for everyday wear. Although I seal them to protect, they should not be exposed to water or jewelry cleaning solutions or rough treatment. Patinas are basically like rust - they are created on the surface of metal by chemical treatments - and they can chip or flake off even though they are sealed. If you must clean them, wipe carefully with a damp cloth. You can also periodically re-apply a semi-gloss spray lacquer and/or microcrystalline wax to your pieces to continue to protect the finishes.
My hand applied Traditional Patinas:
ANTIQUE OXIDIZED - warm to deep brown tones.
FLAME - warm copper that sometimes has hints of red, orange, blue or silver - each piece is unique. Created by applying torch to metal, and quite variable - I cannot produce certain colors - the end result isn't apparent until the copper is sealed with lacquer. This is a heat patina rather than a chemical patina.
VERDIGRIS - the traditional copper patina, variable shades of green -sometimes light, sometimes darker, sometimes with a bit of blue.
TIDELINE - oxidized deep brown base, frosted with tones that vary from blue ocean to teal

As these are handmade, they are not matching in size, shape or color.

There is a 1 to 2 week production time for this made to order item.
