  7. String a crimp tube onto either end of the strand, but do not crimp them yet.
  8. Thread each end of the strand through a split ring, back through the crimp tube, pull snug and crimp the tube.
  9. Add a silver sparkle crimp bead cover over the top of each crimp tube and gently squeeze shut. Trim off excess wire.
  10. To one end of the bracelet, add the loop part of the toggle clasp. Add the bar part of the clasp to the other end of the bracelet.
