White Bronze

We have a winner!!! Nancy Riordan guessed 1,2,3 and 7. Congratulations!!!! The magic that goes into this alloy is as follows:

Copper 61%
Manganese 17%
Zinc 16.3%
Beryllium 2.05%
Nickel 2% max
Lead 1.5%

The metal is durable. The manganese supports the lack of tarnishing. There is a very small amount of Nickel and Lead in the alloy. If you are concerned about reaction - the clasps can be clear coated using non-yellowing indoor-outdoor laquer.

The magnetic clasps are on the site now and advance orders are being taken.

Soon I will have many of your favorites like the Polka Dot Ruffle, Sea Urchin Ruffle, Chartres and Deco Triangle as well as the Gingko clasp available. I am having the cones done in white bronze so that those of you that do bead crochet, kumihimo, and multiple strand pieces can have the brilliant white of white bronze without the cost of silver. The clasps will be at the bronze price point.
