  • Clasps for leather cord

    I would welcome your preferences on clasps for leather. The only ones I,ve seen are like a hook and eye that are crimped onto the leather.
    Also I friend of mine has a pendant on a leather cord with an adjustable clasp. It slides up and down so you can wear if different lengths. Can anyone point me in the direction where I might find these.
    TIA

    If you are wanting to use clasps on thong you can use fold over cord ends which are U shaped metal things where you put the cord in and fold the sides over with pliers. Search for 'cord ends' on ebay. You then attach jump rings and a clasp.
    Don't know about adjustable ones but you can knot the cord so the knot slides up and down the thong to make it different lengths.

      Emma Ralph has an excellent sliding knot tutorial on her fabby website:

      I consider crimped ends to be the most secure for leather. I prefer the version with a simple eye which allows me to add my own clasp, with or without an extender.

        Like mizgeorge I prefer crimp ends for thongs and cords often squezing a little dab of glue into the crimp before putting the cord end in just a bit of belt and braces
