This is the focal clasp from “Beaded Rope” necklace in Kumihimo Basics and Beyond by Rebecca Ann Combs. The project is featured on page 47.
This set contains two pieces:
1 bronze spiral ~35mm (~1 5/8 inches) long.
1 “figure 8” ring ~13mm (1/2 inch) long
The back of the spiral is stamped with the maker’s mark of Kim Fox.
This simple spiral is connected with a loop. The pattern on the spiral is that of a labyrinth. The spiral is a symbol of becoming – whether from the inside out or the outside in. It works as a clasp or as a clasp/bail for pendants that can be easily changed.
