This type of clasp is used in weaved or crochet jewelry. While one end of the clasp has a button or fastener made of plastic, fabric, or wood, the other end forms a loop. To fasten the clasp, one has to slide the button or fastener through the loop. Button clasps are used in thread jewelry as the clasp is lightweight. The use of metal clasps can damage the delicate thread used in making it. This clasp is easy to use and can be comfortably operated with one hand. Button clasps are secure enough to support thread bracelets, but one should ensure that the button fits snugly into the loop and does not slip out easily.
