Recent News and Updates

Exciting new power clasp news!

1. The casting company that made the cases for our solar power clasps closed shop this year and the new caster works in bronze rather than brass, so you’ll see two new solar power clasp options on the components page. (Extra bonus – the price of the white bronze clasp has dropped a smidge since we no longer need the extra silver-plating step to get the silver color!)

2. We have also added a completely new power clasp option: USB-rechargeable! These are currently only available in a matte black plastic version. These clasps have no solar panel; instead they accept a micro-USB connector to recharge the internal battery. (You may already have a suitable cable, or you can add one to your AnglerFish order.) Now you can wear your illuminated necklace even during sunless Arctic winters (or days that seem like sunless Arctic winter)!

Solar powered rechargeable LED  illumination system

  • Finished jewelry, DIY kits and individual components available.
  • A single LED illuminates the focal bead in each necklace.
  • Solar-rechargeable battery pack (“power clasp”) mounts between a magnetic necklace clasp to provide power. (No batteries to change!).  A USB rechargeable option is also available.
  • One power clasp can illuminate necklaces interchangeably.
  • Necklaces can be worn with or without the power clasp. (Power clasp adds one inch to total length.)
  • Created by jewelry designers for jewelry designers, our DIY assembly uses tools and methods familiar to beaders, like screw crimps, tube crimps and multi-strand stringing wire.
