Say hello to the Mint & Birch Claspie! This is something that I came up with as I struggled to keep my necklaces untangled when I wore them together. Because of the way that we are constantly moving our bodies and due to gravity, our necklaces inevitably move, shift, twist and dance on our necks! I'm constantly bending down to pick up my 5 kids so I always got tangles in my necklaces when I wore them layered.
This is a Mint & Birch contraption and invention. To view how it works, please see the video posted on Instagram at @mintandbirch!
Comes in 3 different metal options: Sterling Silver, 14k Rose Gold Fill and 14k Yellow Gold Fill. Features streamlined clasps that is super easy to attach. This piece is also interchangeable with other Mint & Birch necklaces and simply clips onto the necklaces that you want to layer together. At this time, it is for layering 2 necklaces. More versions will come in the future with 3 necklace layer options.
While it will not completely prevent ALL twisting due to gravity and that we are always moving our bodies. You may still need to run your hand across the chain for the tangles, but the Claspie will reduce a lot of this. What the Claspie DOES is help reduce the tangles and shifting that happens when you wear multiple necklaces together. (You know, when your necklace sits on your neck like a hula hoop and your bar necklace is knotted with a disc, 😂). If they do get twisted, they will be much easier to undo and will tremendously help to prevent knots and tangles. The Claspie will also prevent the necklace from sliding around your neck like a hula hoop! Please note, that for adjustable goddess necklaces, it only works to sit evenly when the goddess necklace is clipped at the largest length so it sits evenly.
WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT MINT & BIRCH PIECES?
T H E M A G I C I S I N T H E P R O C E S S .
Each Mint & Birch piece starts out as sheets of precious metal. Each bar, disc, oval, heart is cut and polished by hand in my studio. Each piece is cut lovingly by me one order at a time. Jessica, the owner of the company.
Yes! You can wear these pieces every day without worry of flaking, peeling or tarnish!
I personally file, drill and polish each one with my own hands. I only use ethically sourced gold fill and solid sterling silver sheets sourced from North American mills. Using hand tools allows me to have a greater degree of control and precision over the piece to ensure that edges are beautifully smooth and that no damage occurs when finishing the piece into shiny necklaces! I do not use a tumbler, in which several pieces are put into a rotating canister with abrasives or steel pins to quickly smooth batches of pieces, causing micro scratches and unnecessary wear. Instead, I believe in good old-fashioned hard work done with elbow grease! Your bar necklace will not flake and you can wear it daily! The combination of high quality materials and my unique process of finishing the bars results in pieces that will last for years to come. I strive to offer my best, offering customizations not found elsewhere, such as the original hand lettered pieces.
