You can order beads online from any craft store (JoAnn’s, Michael’s, etc.) I would recomend an lobster clasp. Good luck! It’s really pretty

They do make little things that look like a bar with a bunch of loops on one side and one  on the other (see crappy text image and pretend the row of lower rings is against the line)

You attatch the clasp to the one and all the strands to the other. A bead shop or craft store should sell these too

@Pappy8:  You could use fishing line… or if you look in the bead section they have different stringing material.

I love these necklaces. I just purchased a bunch during my last visit to New Mexico (where they are SUPER cheap). Can’t wait to see your finished work.

I found those clasps that look like they would work, they’re only 6 strands though.

 

Doing something like the focal point multistrand bracelet on this page might work also. You could run all the strands through one slightly larger (or maybe even the same) bead and then connect to a single clasp from there. http://aidenofthetower.hubpages.com/hub/Making-Multi-Strand-Bracelets

 

Also found this link that might be closer to what you want. http://www.making-beaded-jewelry.com/torsade.html
