The number of DS of the 3rd Round depends on the tension of the points applied and the thickness of the threads used.
Attach the clasp.
The center piece of the bracelet may be any type of gem or cabochon as long as it has a backing of metal filigree to allow thread to be joined to them.
This is an example by Marilee Rockley of the use of a filigree finding.
If such findings are not available, build a backing by tatting very long picots which are pulled to the center of the item. Place glue on the stiffened picots and attach gem.
