The platings on antiqued ball chain and accessories is not as durable as our typical platings. Just like items with a natural patina, normal wear will lighten the high points, while the crevices will remain dark. In order to keep the clasps dark, we recommend coating them with a spray lacquer sealer before wear.

Large 4.8mm copper plated brass ball chain clasps, for use with 4.8mm bulk ball chain. Antiqued copper plate is a copper plating that has been darkened to provide a "distressed" (oxidized) appearance. Ball chain is a trendy option for making simple custom necklaces that display personalized charms (like letter charms and symbol charms to express who you are). These clasps hook both ends of the chain together, to make a necklace or a key ring. If the clasp appears too tight to fit on your chain, gently loosen the clasp with an awl or chain-nose pliers.
