Does anyone know how to make frog clasps?

Hi, I'll be doing Meryl Strife from Trigun soon, and under her cape thing she has these long frog clasps on her jacket. Frog clasps are nothing extraordinary, but none I've found are any bigger than 4 in, and not nearly the same style, so at this point I'm thinking that I'm just going to have to learn how to make them myself. Does anyone happen to know how or is in possession of a tutorial? Thanks in advance.

Did you try eBay?

I hired a jewler to make a sterling silver clasp for Edward Elric's black jacket. If you have additional money, you can hire someone.

What luck. I had to make ten of them for me and my friend cosplaying Ranma and Ryoga, fudged mine by using the wrong colour, and made five more. They're pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Attached is the tutorial I found after much scouring of the internet.

Sewing commissions are on hold, but I still do custom pattern-drafting. PM for details.
