1- Take a thread and measure out the length of your longest finger. Fold the thread firmly in two at this point so that the mark stays.

2- Then slide the thread through one of the rings of the clasp, so that it stays on the thread at the fold mark.

3- Then take one end of the thread in each hand and make a simple knot (like starting to tie your shoelaces) that you gently slide so that the clasp is attached to the thread at the fold mark.
