Handmade Wire Clasps

These are really fun, especially hammering flat some of the wire! I had a chasing hammer, but also invested (! these are cheap) in a nylon hammer just for work hardening. I think that I will also sell handmade clasps at my craft shows. I have a good range of copper wire gauges to practice on, or to use for the final product.

I am very inspired by Szarka's jewelry. I'll post a few pics so you can see what wonders she works...
