Cut a length of wire that will accommodate your beads. Pass the end of the wire through a crimp tube, the loop of the lobster claw clasp and then back through the crimp tube. Crimp the tube and string the beads. String a crimp tube and a split ring or soldered closed jumpring to which you can connect the lobster claw clasp when putting the design on, pass the wire back through the crimp tube, remove slack from the wire and crimp the tube. Trim the ends of the wire and hide the crimps with crimp covers if you like.
