Introduction: What Is the "Clasp Connection Wire Technique"?
Adding a clasp to the end of a necklace or bracelet isn’t always as easy as it may seem. Sometimes you have issues. For example, what if your necklace is made out of soldered chains and the connectors on your clasp are also soldered closed? Or, what if you have already made a piece and you don’t like the clasp on it? What if you finished the ends of a piece using crimp beads, and you realized it’s not the length you’d like it to be?

These are all reasons why this technique, which I’m calling “Clasp Connection Wire Technique,” will come in handy. Not only is it function, you’ll also see that this technique will had some interest to the ends of your jewelry piece where they connect to the clasp.
