Repair of Amber Bracelet

Repair of Amber bracelet

The bracelet featured was missing the bottom arm and clasp, and I was asked to make up a new arm and fold over clasp so that the owner could wear it again.

To craft this I used a fantastic tutorial by Hans Meevis which can be found at this link Fold-Over Catch
The bottom arm is a strip of silver that I shaped and filed and added a hinge to match the original bracelet, then I fitted the catch to complete the repair.
