How To Attach A Clasp

This is a simple tutorial on how to add a clasp to a necklace.
This is what you'll need:
a clasp, two jump rings, two crimp beads, a needle nose plier and a crimp nose plier, ribbon or cord. 
The pliers are very handy tools and if you plan on making lots of jewelry, you will get a lot of use out of them, they last for ever.
it's very easy to attach the clasp to your strand, ribbon or cord.  First, you'll need to run your cord or ribbon through your first crimp bead:
Next, loop it over and through your jump ring and back in through your crimp bead again:
With your crimp bead pliers, follow package instructions (very easy to do) press your crimp bead tightly in place:
You'll do the same for the other side:

and that's it! looks difficult but it's actually very simple
