Finish your piece to desired length. Weave back down and around in a figure 8 pattern and exit your needle through the horizontal bead second from the top.

Step 2

Go through the top loop of the slide bar clasp, and back into the second horizontal bead.

Step 3

Turn down into the next vertical bead, then exit the third horizontal bead from the top.

Step 4

Go through the center loop of the slide bar clasp, and back into the third horizontal bead.

Step 5

Turn down into the next vertical bead, then exit the fourth horizontal bead from the top.

Step 6

Go through the bottom loop of the slide bar clasp, and back into the fourth horizontal bead.

Step 7

Pass back through, and reinforce the existing thread paths.

Continue weaving through the beads in a figure 8 pattern several times. This will secure your thread.

Cut your thread. Clean up the ends of your thread, using a Perfect End Thread Burner. Burn, or melt, the end of your thread until the end is no longer visible.

Step 10

Repeat steps 1 through 9 for the second side of your clasp.
