Step 4. The next step is to sew the snap on. For that purpose, mark with a pencil where you are going to place the snap, first from one part of it, and then from the other. Observe symmetry of the marks placed. Separate the snap parts and sew them, each on its respective side. There is no need to сut the thread short afterwards, it is good to keep sewing the bracelet with the same thread.

Step 5. Smooth down the long bending of the bracelet (at the borderline between the beaded side and the wrong side of the bracelet). Continue with applying the adhesive tape along the bending, smooth down over the tape. That enhances the bracelet shape and rigidity over the seamless side securing the two sides of the bracelet joined together.

Step 6. Sew the bracelet together along its margins with close stitches of a concealed seam. When sewing the short sides together, secure the bracelet snap once again.
