Step 1

Once you have completed a flat peyote piece, find a tube bar clasp that has a bar with the same width as your flat peyote piece. In this case, my peyote piece has a width of 10 beads.

Step 2

Loop the end of the flat peyote piece through one of the bars of the clasp.

Step 3

If the thread last came out of bead B (in this case a red bead), go back down through a bead B on the base of the peyote piece. In this case, the bead is about six rows back.

Step 4

Go through the first bead A (in this case a yellow bead) on the end of the peyote piece.

Step 5

Go through the second bead B in the same row on the base of the peyote piece.

Step 6

Go through the second bead A on the end of the peyote piece.

Step 7

Go through the third bead B in the same row on the base of the peyote piece.

Step 8

Go through the third bead A on the end of the peyote piece.

Step 9

Go through the fourth bead B in the same row on the base of the peyote piece.

Step 10

Go through the fourth bead A on the end of the peyote piece.

Step 11

Go through the fifth bead B in the same row on the base of the peyote piece.

Step 12

Go through the fifth bead A on the end of the peyote piece.

Step 13

Go through the bead A in the same row on the base of the peyote piece.

Step 14

Continue going back through the row in a step-like fashion until you have exited from the other side of the peyote piece.

Step 15

Cut the 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 16

Congratulations! One side of the clasp is now completed.

Step 17

Repeat steps 2 through 16 to complete the second side of the clasp.
