you will need to leave a gap and add another crimp bead for the space between the beads and the clasp. try make the bracelet look even, try to leave even gaps at each side.

Step 5: Adding beads

Now it is time to add your beads start with a spacer bead then add a larger bead ,it looks neater. Use spacer beads between bigger beads.Once you have added all your beads put another crimp bead on the end.

Step 6: End loop

This is probably the most difficult part. You need to add another loop at the end. I do this by threading a crimp bead on then bending the ends into it and crimping. 

Step 7: Finishing off

To finish you will need to add jump loops and a clasp. For people who are familiar at making jewelry will know how to open and close jump loops. All you have to do is use two pairs of pliers to twist them open and shut remember to trap a clasp in one of them.   

Step 8: Finished
