I agree that she is referring to a lobster claw clasp. One of the things that I would definitely change is to switch out the split rings for jump rings. I don't like split rings. I think they make a piece look less professionally finished. I was a little iffy about doubling up the chain around the ring, too, but it looks nice.
She definitely does her wrapped loops a bit differently than my method and I couldn't imagine even attempting to bead with long nails like that. I would never be able to do it!

Thanks for this, Ellen. The artist said she was going to use a "trigger" clasp. I never heard that term but guessed it would be the same as what I call a "lobster claw". I did some research and the two terms do refer to the same kind of clasp.
