  3. Cut the wire, and bend the sharp end over in the same way you did at the beginning. Your clasp should look like this:

  4. One side of the clasp should be closed. First, slide this side over the jump ring, and close it with flat nose pliers (as shown). The other opening of the clasp should be just slightly open, enough to slide the jump ring on and off.

  5. The jumpring that will be used to slide on and off of the clasp should be a larger, oval jumpring.
