Putting it all together

Pick up the flower diamante 2 strand box clasp and separate the two pieces. Open up the jump ring (as they are quite strong, you will need two pairs of pliers or a jump ring tool) on the end of strand one and attach the top of one part of the clasp. Close securely. Open up the jump ring on the end of strand two and attach to the bottom of the part of the clasp, close securely. Repeat with the other side of the necklace. Your necklace is now ready to wear!
