how to attach a hook or clasp
Here’s an alternative way how to attach a hook or clasp on a beaded jewelry. Instead of using jump rings to attach the clasps, I weaved the claps onto the bracelet. In this tutorial, the bracelet is created using RAW beadweaving technique and the clasp I used are those 2-hole clasp.

    Then slide another seed bead after the clasp and bring the thread into the crystal just below the first seed bead and then pull the thread. Don't cut the thread, yet but just set aside.

    Now, do the same steps of sliding in a seed bead, followed by the claps and a seed bead again. Bring the thread into the crystal just below your first seed bead, just like what you did on the previous step and then pull the thread.

    This is how it would like. To have a secure and neat finish, insert your thread back thru several crystals until they meet or cross and tie a knot. Before cutting the thread, insert again into several crystals then cut the thread. Just repeat these simple steps for the other end.
