Clasps

All my clasps are made out of stainless steel so they won’t rust or tarnish. Generally, I use variations of a shackle in an attempt to reappropriate one of the most infamous relics of slavery. As symbolic as they are striking, these clasps are representative of overcoming the things that bind us– both personal and systemic.
