How to Add Closures to Bracelets

Closures are an important accessory to add to your handmade bracelets. They are what keeps your bracelet secured to your wrist.

With just a few simple steps, your bracelet will be finished once the clasp has been added.

Step 1

Decide on which kind of closure you would like use for your bracelet. You can choose from a spring, lobster, or toggle clasp. You can also use magnetic clasps as well. These work well for those who have arthritis, or have trouble hooking clasps together.
