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. The cord is hand braided in house from 16 individual strands. The cord is connected to the clasp with staggered Mathew Walker knots, the ends of which have been tightly whipped.  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. 

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