The cord is tied using sailor knotting and Japanese kumihimo braiding.  The braid has 16 strands, and is made over a wooden loom.  The clasp is attached to the cord with staggered Mathew Walker knots, the ends of which are whipped with waxed polyester.  The original pattern for the clasp was hand carved from plastic.  From this pattern a rubber mold was made.  The claps are lost wax cast in the USA, and hand finished in house.  To use the clasp simply align the gaps in each side, and they will be able to pass through each other.  This takes a little practice, but soon becomes natural.  

The cord is available tied with tarred nylon (pictured), which is pigment colored, and fades beautify with wear.  Please be aware that this pigment may stain lightly colored fabrics during the first few months of wear.  It is also available with hand dyed nylon, which looks similar from a distance, but is much more supple, and does not fade as dramatically.  With an 18" cord the necklace hangs just below the collar bone on most people.  If you would like a longer cord please contact me prior to ordering.
