How to Add Closures to Bracelets


Closures are an important accessory to add to your handmade bracelets. They are what keeps your bracelet secured to your wrist. Unless you are creating a stretch bracelet, having a closure is important. They are very easy to attach to a bracelet. With just a few simple steps, your bracelet will be finished once the clasp has been added.

  • Decide on which kind of closure you would like use for your bracelet. You can choose from a spring, lobster, or toggle clasp. You can also use magnetic clasps as well. These work well for those who have arthritis, or have trouble hooking clasps together.

  • String all of your beads onto the bracelet that you would like. Be sure that it is the correct length and you have plenty of string left over to tie your clasp onto your bracelet.

  • Tie a knot next to the last bead on both ends of the bracelet. You could also put a crimp bead on both ends of the bracelet as well.

  • Loop your string through the hole on the hook of the clasp. Tie it securely so that the clasp does not fall off. You can also string a crimp bead near the clasp to so that the clasp stays on.

  • Attach the other part of the closure on the end of the bracelet the same way. If you have a spring clasp or a lobster clap, tie a jump ring on the other side so that the clasp has something else to attach to. You can attach your bracelet to your wrist securely once the clasp has been added.
