To incorporate the clasp you choose into your design, knot each cord around the loop of a single eyepin then pull the eyepin through a large cone or cord cap. Finish the end of the eyepin with a wrapped loop, securing your clasp in the loop before making the wraps.
If the loop of the eyepin is too small for all of the cords in your design, consider making your own eyepin with a large loop. Cut a length of wire and form a simple loop on the end using the larger section of the round-nose pliers. For added security use a wrapped loop rather than a simple loop.
