A lobster clasp attachment is a type of fastener commonly used in jewelry making to secure bracelets, necklaces, and other types of jewelry. It is named after its resemblance to the claw of a lobster.
A lobster clasp typically consists of a small, hinged mechanism that opens and closes, allowing the user to attach or remove the jewelry from their body. One end of the clasp is attached to the jewelry piece, while the other end has a small ring or loop that can be connected to another part of the jewelry or to a chain or cord.
Lobster clasps are popular because they are relatively easy to use and provide a secure hold on the jewelry. They come in various sizes and materials, such as metal, plastic, and even some high-end jewelry made from gold or sterling silver.
