how do I add connectors to elastic beaded bracelets without tying knots on each bail?

I am trying to dress up beaded elastic corded bracelets with connectors that have bails at each end. I see stretch cord bracelets that have connectors that seem to loop back into the last bead on each side. How is this accomplished? I am not seeing crimp beads, but is that an option with elastic cord? Just looking for a nicer finish then an obvious knot at both ends. Thanks.

Not sure about connecting without knots, however you could buy crimp covers (I've seen them in silver plate, gold plate, gunmetal and antique gold finishes). they come in a couple of different sizes and really add a nice upgrade to any piece that uses crimps/knots at the clasp/connectors.
