Q.
I have just restrung a coral necklace my father had given my sister. It was on silk thread and the ends of the thread were glued into the clasp's round bead ends. How do I finish it now that I have all the coral strung on silk? How do I get the clasp on, and what type of clasp can I use on silk thread?

Bead tips are the perfect solution to finish your coral restrung on silk because they are easy to use, and provide a professionally finished look. The clasp is largely up to your choice, as bead tips will attach to nearly any clasp with their looped ends. Follow the ''Bead Tips, How-To'' how-to video and illustrated instructions for complete directions to incorporate these handy findings into your design.
