A basic S-Hook Clasp is sometimes all you need to finish a piece of jewelry. You can make it yourself with wire and some basic jewelry tools. An s-hook is sometimes referred to as an s-clasp or a wire closure. Hook clasps are great closures for both necklaces and bracelets.
Here is an easy way to make an s-hook with tools you probably already have for jewelry making. No need to buy a special jig or tool just to make clasps.
What should I use as the hook eye?
You can either bend wire to make a loop for the hook eye, use a jump ring or use large enough chain that the clasp can loop through the end of the chain.
What is an S Hook clasp?
An s hook clasp is a closure used for jewelry. It is referred to as an s hook because the wire is shaped in the form of the letter “S”. It can either be left plain or extra loops can be made on the ends, as we did, to make it prettier and easier to use.
How do you attach a S Hook clasp?
The S Hook clasp can either be attached using a jump ring or attached directly to your chain. The one end that is attached to the jewelry or jump ring should be gently closed so that it stays attached to your jewelry.
