Step 1

Once you have completed your tubular herringbone piece, make sure that the needle is exiting from the first A bead in the last row.

Step 2

String a large bead that is wide enough in diameter to cover most of the end of the tubular herringbone. In this case, we are using an 8mm crystal rondelle.

Step 3

String on the clasp.

Step 4

Go back down through the large bead.

Step 5

Go back down through the next bead in the last row of seed beads.

Step 6

Go back up through the next bead.

Step 7

Go back up through the large bead.

Step 8

Go through the clasp again and back down through the large bead.

Step 9

Go back down through the next bead in the last row of seed beads.

Step 10

Again, go back up through the next bead.

Step 11

Go back up through the large bead.

Step 12

Again, go through the clasp and back down through the large bead.

Step 13

Go down through the next bead in the last row of seed beads.

Step 14

Go back up through the next bead.

Step 15

Again, go up through the large bead.

Step 16

Go through the clasp and back down the large bead.

Step 17

Go through the next bead in the last row of seed beads.

Step 18

Go back up through the next bead.

Step 19

Congratulations! You have now attached one side of the clasp. Finish off the thread by weaving it down and through the tubular herringbone several times as shown in the Basic Herringbone Stitch.

Step 20

Repeat steps 1-19 using a jump ring or the other side of the clasp.

Step 21

Congratulations, you have attached a clasp to a tubular herringbone piece!
