Optional--Embellishing the Clasp

Following manufacturer's directions, mix up a small amount of epoxy.

Using a toothpick or skewer, apply a small amount of epoxy to a section of the perimeter of the clasp.

Using tweezers, pick up a Swarovski crystal, flat back and apply to the epoxied area.

Continue to apply epoxy and set the flat backs, all the way around the clasp. Set the clasp aside to let the epoxy cure, about 1 hour.
