Good quality end clasps for kumihimo braids at a resonable price are hard to find. These clasps are irresistable. The addition of copper, antique brass tones and oxidized finished is a welcome addition. These are glue in clasps. Check previous finding page for best way to glue cords and braids into clasps.
Normally I prefer sterling silver or gold filled components for my braids & cords, but these end clasps combine good design and great prices. I love the copper finshes and will be adding them to my kits. However be aware that the magnetic clasps are not super strong, so they will work for lighter pieces. For heavier pieces or bracelets, I recommend adding Peyote Sleeves over the clasps, adding a security chain or cord between the two sides, or using stronger magnetic clasps such as the Euro Magnetic Clasps.
