Cut a piece of wire a few inches longer than you’ll need for your beads.
Towards one end, place a crimping bead and then a lobster clasp.

Loop the wire around the clasp and back through the crimp bead. Crimp the bead down to secure the lobster clasp.

If you’re not a fan of the knot look, you could also sew your ribbon around the jump rings instead.
