End bars with fold-in ends would be a perfect solution to your dilemma. They are easy to use and look nice. The open end allows you to slide the last row of your design inside without crushing your beads. Fold the open end down to secure the piece in place. The tube accepts round beads up to 3mm in diameter.
Another nice option to finish flat beaded jewelry is to stitch a slide lock or other straight-profile multi-strand clasp to the ends of your design.
