Attach the clasp. A long time ago, I read somewhere that for safety a bracelet should have a link that would give way if for some reason the bracelet was pulled on very hard. Since then, when attaching a clasp, many times I will not solder the jump ring if it is of a heavy gauge hard temper. How you attach the clasp is totally up to you.
Use 320, 400, and then 600 grit sandpaper or sanding pads to clean and refine the solder joins where needed.
Pickle and rinse the bracelet. Tumble in shot, water and a drop of dish liquid for several hours.
Remove the bracelet from the tumbler and rinse. If the all the parts of each piece are still attached, the solder joins are likely permanent. If not, the old solder should be filed off and the pieces soldered together again.
Patina if desired. Removing patina from the high spots on the bracelet links may leave a matte finish. If a higher polish is desired, tumble for a nother 15 to 30 minutes. Remove and dry the bracelet.
Wear and enjoy!
A clasp can MAKE or BREAK a design. While each of the clasps attached to the bracelet links work, the round ones with the ball on the trigger work SO much better. A round toggle clasp embellished with balls would look fabulous as well.
