Soft Glass Problem

I like the look of this pendant cord combination but I am having a bit of trouble fastening the clasp to the cord. I made the cord by combining tiger tail and soft glass. Any ideas out there? Anyone know of a tutorial or instructions? Or different materials for the same look.

One thing I like to use with rubber cord that should also work with the softglas, is a handmade wire cord end. (I do have a tutorial is at my site, if you need it.)

If I remember correctly, softglas is hollow, so the tiniest length of a round tooth pick placed in the end before clamping the cord end on, may keep the end from crushing when the end is squeezed.

Hope that helps, Joan.
