The thimble is sand cast in house. I carved the original thimble pattern from wood, which I then used to create a two-part metal pattern.  

I fabricated the original pattern for the sister clasp from brass wire.  From this pattern a rubber mold was made.  The clasp is lost wax cast in the USA and hand finished in house.  

The colored cords are waxed in house; the brown cord is hand dyed in house as well.  I found the salvage cord in a salt marsh a few years ago.  It has a really beautiful patina from exposure to salt and sun.  I did run it through the wash!

Thimbles of this type are traditionally spliced into the end of rope or cable. This creates a permanent loop, so that the unit may be conveniently attached to chain, an eye-bolt, or some other piece of equipment.
