If you plan to add a significant number of strands to your piece, or if you plan to use large beads, you will need to use a large closed jump ring.
Cut a piece of Soft Flex Beading Wire to your desired length plus two inches. Crimp one end of the Soft Flex to one closed jump ring.
String beads onto the Soft Flex until the desired length has been reached.
Crimp the other end of the Soft Flex to the second closed jump ring.
Repeat Steps 1-3 with the remaining number of strands that you wish to add. We have chosen to create three strands.
Connect one of the closed jump rings to one end of the clasp by attaching it with an open jump ring. (See the Opening and Closing a Jump Ring technique.)
Repeat Step 5 to attach the remaining closed jump ring to the other side of the clasp to complete the piece.
