    I designed this bracelet after repairing a bracelet with a similar clasp for a friend.  The clasp concept was familiar, but I'd never handled one, and was impressed by its simplicity and effectiveness.  I'd been wanting to make a chain bracelet for ages, and the clasp seemed a practical alternative to the luxury of a box clasp.  Low and behold, the mechanism has nautical roots, and... is called a sister hook - it virtually shares a name with the sister clasps (originally called Ingelfield Hooks) which I use on many other pieces.

    The chain itself starts out as brass wire, which I coil, cut, and solder link-by-link.  Once soldered, it is twisted gradually so that it lies flat. It's a labor-intensive process, though relatively straight-forward. 

    To design the clasp I first hand-cut and tested a number of samples, before laying out the components in the computer and having them laser cut at a facility in Utah.  The secondary elements (spacer-tube and rivets) I hand cut, and everything is hand-finished and assembled in-house.  The finish is raw, with the various scrapes and tool-marks left as-is and polished over, as per most of my designs.  

    To use the clasp: the side that hinges we will call the clasp, and the other side we will call the bail.  Position the bail so it is close to the the bottom/chain-end of the clasp.  Pivot one side of the clasp 90 degrees; the opening should bypass the bail with out resistance.  Then unhook the bail from the other side of the clasp.  When closed, both sides of the clasp need to be hooked around the bail as in the pictures.  Its pretty logical in person, just practice a bit before trying to put it on yourself :)
