Step 1

Once you have completed your netted piece, weave back down and around and exit your needle through the B bead second from the top.

Step 2

String 3 beads of an accent color (B), 1 bead in coordinating color (A), and 15 beads of an accent color.

Step 3

Go back through bead A and the 3B beads.

Step 4

Go back through the B bead second from the top.

Step 5

Go down through the adjacent 2A and 1B beads.

Step 6

Go up through the adjacent 2A and 1B beads.

Step 7

Go down through the next adjacent 2A and 1B beads.

Step 8

Go back up through the next adjacent 2A and 1B beads.

Step 9

String 3B, 1A and 15B.

Step 10

Go back through bead A and the 3B beads.

Step 11

Repeat steps 4 and 5 to complete the second loop.

Step 12

To finish off this end of the thread, weave down through the piece several times. Exit from a side B bead and cut the thread.

Step 13

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 14

Both loops are complete. The number of loops may vary depending on the width of your netted piece.

Step 15

To finish the other side of your piece, thread your needle with the remaining thread from the beginning of your piece. Weave the thread through the piece until you exit from the B bead second from the bottom.

Step 16

String 5B, 1 6mm round crystal, and 1B bead.

Step 17

Go back through the 6mm round crystal and the 5B beads.

Step 18

Go back through the B bead second from the bottom.

Step 19

Weave down and around until you exit through the first B bead in the row.

Step 20

String 5B, 1 6mm round crystal, and 1B bead.

Step 21

Go back through the 6mm round crystal and the 5B beads.

Step 22

Go back through the B bead first from the top.

Step 23

Go up through the adjacent 2A and 1B beads.

Step 24

To finish off this end of the thread, weave down through the piece several times. Exit from a side B bead and cut the thread.

Step 25

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 26

Congratulations, both sides of your clasp are now
complete.
