Step 3: String a round bead, a crimp bead, another round bead, and the lobster clasp. Loop back through these beads. Tighten by gently pulling on the wire. When you crimp the crimp bead make sure you move the round beads away from your crimping pliers so they don't get squished. Trim the wire and tuck the tail into the last twisted bugle bead.


Step 4: Repeat step 3 with the other half of the clasp.
