A magnetic clasp with an outside loop that you attach your stringing material to will also work to achieve a tight-fitting bracelet. All of our single-strand magnetic clasps as well as nearly all of our multi-strand magnetic clasps have this type of attachment. Because it is easy to access the point where you will be securing the bracelet to the clasp with your tools, the fit is easier to control.
Beading wire such as Accu-Flex® beading wire is one of the best stringing materials to use for bracelets that incorporate a magnetic clasp. This type of wire's core contains many strands of stainless steel cable, so using it for your project will help your bracelet withstand the wear associated with pulling the clasp halves apart.
Use crimp beads and crimping pliers to attach the wire to the clasp.
