All of our jewelry, including jump rings and clasps, is made by hand using 18 karat yellow gold. The cord we use is made of nylon and is hand-picked from a local market in Taiwan.
about the clasp
The clasp is handmade in 18 karat yellow gold. Slight variations will occur as each one is made by hand for each piece. There is no need to pull open the clasp. It has been work-hardened and is tension-based. To fasten the clasp, please gently let it click onto the jump ring. To unfasten the clasp, please gently let it click off of the jump ring. If for any reason, you feel the clasp is opening up - once you have it on, just push down slightly, but please do not pull up on it.
jewelry cleaning + care
While these handmade pieces are made to be worn every day, they are still fine jewelry. It is recommended to remove all jewelry prior to bathing, swimming, exercise, and/or sleeping. To help keep your jewelry clean, please put on jewelry after all lotions, perfumes, oils, sprays, and/or body products have been applied. Please do not use any abrasive cleaners or chemicals to clean your jewelry.
18 karat yellow gold is a beautiful metal and develops a lovely patina with wear. Jewelry can be cleaned using a mild detergent, warm water, (and a soft-bristled brush such as an old toothbrush if necessary), and then wiped dry with a soft cloth. The cord may also be gently washed using a very tiny amount of the same mild detergent and allowed to air dry.
