Once all of the beads are in place on the necklace, add your crimp tube or crimp bead and once piece of French Wire to one end of the wire. Place one end of your clasp (a fish hook clasp is shown here) so that it is over the French wire, then run the beading wire back through the crimp tube (a Twisted Tornado Crimp Tube is shown here) or crimp bead, making a loop with the beading wire and French Wire.

Pull the beading wire snug and close the crimp with either the crimp tool or flat pliers, depending on the type of crimp bead or crimp tube used. Repeat on the other side, making sure that the beading wire is pulled tight against the beads and there are no gaps of bare wire showing.

That's all there is to it. You now have a beautiful Resin Bead Focal Beaded necklace of your own. Make a bracelet to match, using a smaller resin bead or with just the amber, Peruvian opal and pearls.
