Niobium JPL matched pair bracelets by Zeroignite Niobium JPL matched pair bracelets by Zeroignite
Two paired Jens Pind Linkage bracelets in anodized Niobium!
Made of 17ga anodized Niobium (element #41), these are totally hypoallergenic and have an opalescent sheen that's even more beautiful in person than photos can capture. Each bracelet is pleasantly heavy, about the weight of sterling silver.

I would absolutely love to sell these as a matched set for a couple :)

Niobium. . .lucky broad :-P I still can't yet afford to get niobium, though I really, REALLY want to (I have an earring a friend bought me made out of niobium and I love the metal already) but in due time I suppose.

Also, what kind of clasp is that? The round side looks like a toggle but even zooming waaaay in I cannot quite tell what the other part is. Either my vision is refusing to let me really see it enough to recognize it or that's a clasp type I've not yet encountered.

It's a Snap Clasp --- they're sort of like a trailer hitch on trucks. They're an ok balance of cost, security, and ease of use for bracelets. I've stopped using them on higher-end pieces since they do wear out after a while, but it's perfect for ~$20-range bracelets.

Ah, thanks hun, I may have to see about getting my hands on a few to test them out as I loath the battle I must wage with lobster clasps but love their security and have been looking for a secure but easier to use clasp.

One thing I've found useful it to use oval lobster clasps rather than teadrop-shaped ones --- I'm gonna make a post on the TRL forums on the difference.

The link below is a clasp shape that is MUCH easier to use than other lobster clasps.

Ya know, threads on clasp types isn't something I've seen many of on the TRL forums, actually I've yet to discover any of those in truth. Most certainly a good topic though as I (and I'm guessing a few others) tend to get stumped on decent clasp types and argue with myself as to which type would work best for what piece considering weight and the like. Would be a good topic to see go up!

I've handled those longer clasps before, never really noticed much difference but then again I normally rope one of my girlfriends into helping me with most clasps anyways. I'm mostly looking at different types of clasps for the pieces I'm going to be selling.

Nicely done! I've thought of trying Nio but I haven't done so yet.

It's expensive, but beautiful and a joy to work with. There's very little springback; the rings stay where you put them.
