Reviving this thread because I NEED to know how to do this sort of thing. Any ideas, anyone?

I tried burning the ends, but my rope must not be synthetic because it definitely did not melt!

I'll give the glue idea a try, thank you guys!

Thanks for the suggestions! What kind of glue do you suggest I use. I tried hot glue, but obviously that didn't work as well as I'd like.

Hey! I'm new to all of this and I've just started making jewelry. I'm trying to figure out the best way to attach a clasp to a braided rope bracelet. Most of the bracelets that I've seen that are made of rope or similar materials don't use an actual clasp. Does anyone have any tips?

I've added some pictures below so you can see what I've tried. As you can see, it's looking a little messy! Please help!

(Sorry, Craftster won't let me post pictures cuz I'm a newbie!)
