How to use calottes to attach a clasp
 
Calottes are also called necklace ends, bead tips and clamshells. I will show you how to use calottes to attach a clasp and finish off a necklace or bracelet. Try to avoid opening and closing them more than twice because they tend to brake easily.
Step 1
Insert a crimp bead onto your cord/wire and flatten it with your crimping pliers.
Step 2
String the calotte onto the cord/wire until the crimp bead is in the middle of the calotte. Cut the wire next to the crimp so that no parts will stick out.
Step 3
Gently close the calotte with your flat or chain nose pliers until it is completely shut.
Step 4
Open the loop of the calotte by using your pliers and attach a jump ring. Close the loop completely, (you can attach the clasp directly if you prefer). Open the jump ring to attach the clasp. Close the jump ring.
Step 5
Insert a calotte and jump ring on the other end of the necklace or bracelet as an attachment for the clasp.
