Box clasps consist of two pieces―one is shaped like a wedge that can be compressed, and the other is shaped like a box. There is a slit in the box through which the lower part of the wedge-shaped end projects out and acts as an external lever. To open the clasp, one has to press the external lever, which compresses the wedge and it slips out. However, closing the clasp is easy, and all you need to do is press the wedge into the box-shaped end, and it clicks shut. Box clasps are of medium strength, and good for lightweight bracelets or necklaces, but are not meant for ones that are heavy.
2. Cut the piece approximately 5/8 longer than needed, that extra length will make the loop that your leather rope will go through to hang the pendant when finished. Now grind that extra length to an even thickness, approximately 1/16 thick, so it will bend easily to form the loop. If it is too wide you can grind some off of the width before you bend the loop. With a fine file, smooth the edges of the ground metal so that it will not mar the leather and will slide easily on the cord.
This is due to the chemical reaction of the silver, with sulfides present in the environment. This is usually due to airborne pollutants, but can also be transferred to the jewelry on your hands.
