This sterling silver toggle clasp is individually handmade in a star shape . I use a mold that is my own design. The star has little lines radiating out to each of the five points. I've added a patina to show the detail. This clasp can be the finishing touch that makes your necklace or bracelet a star!

The clasp is made from sterling silver metal clay. Metal clay made from microscopic bits of metal mixed with an organic binder to make it in clay form. I roll the clay out and into my custom mold. Each star must be cut out by hand. Then I cut out the circle in the center for the clasp. After drying and sanding, the star is fired. The high temperatures burn away all the organic binder in the clay, leaving only the metal.

The bar portion of the clasp is made from thick sterling silver wire. Then I solder jump rings on to both parts of the clasp so you can attach it to your design.

I finish the clasp by adding the dark colored patina, which brings out the detail in the star. Then it gets tumbled to shine it up and harden the metal. Finally I put on a coat of jewelers wax to help keep it from tarnishing.

Since each clasp is individually handmade, no two will be exactly alike. Please allow up to two weeks for me to make one just for you. (If you need it sooner, please message me to find out if I have any in stock.)

Important Information:
Toggle size: approximately 20 mm, not including attached jump ring
Bar length: approximately 20 mm
Signed with quality mark on reverse
