This sterling silver basket thimble cage jewelry holds your heirloom thimble with care. It has a lobster clasp holding the cage together at the top, and it hinges at the basket near the bottom. There is a large bead in the basket to maintain balance inside the thimble, and to keep it from bouncing out of the basket. The thimble and basket need to be properly fitted to be safe to wear in public. Please contact Jan or meet her at a show to get your favorite thimble fitted into the correct cage.
