Hello all. I have designed a clasp-device which includes a flexible
snap. Cast in 18K, the snap is of course too soft to spring back.
Is there a springy alloy I can use, or possibly just a lower (10K
e.g.) karat gold that would work, and continue to work over time?
Or is platinum the answer? I’d rather stick with gold if possible.
I do remember reading about a new patented gold with memory; whether
it’s the alloy or the process that creates this characteristic, I
Please don’t tell me that it can’t be done by casting. I’m hoping
there’s a way.
Thanks so very much to the pros in this wonderful group who so
generously mentor us all.
