If you find it difficult to fasten a lobster claw clasp bracelet by yourself, try this. Cut an 8-in. (20 cm) length of cord or string, and pass one end through the clasp ring. Make the ends of the cord even. Hold your hand palm up, and place the cord against your palm, using your fingers to hold the ends of the cord against your hand, with the clasp ring on the inside of your wrist. Let the bracelet fall to the outside of your wrist. Open the clasp with your other hand, wrap the bracelet around your wrist, and hook the clasp. Pull the cord free.
