- Prefered stringing material (wire, stretch cord, or thread)
- Assorted beads
- 2 eyepins
- 1 set of bead cones
- 2 jump rings
First, I attached my stringing material (which is wire in my case) to one of my jump rings.
Then I started stringing beads on the first strand. Once I got to the desired length, I attached the strand to the second jump ring. I repeated this for all the strands.
Once all the strands were strung with beads and secured at both ends to the jump rings, I attached the eye pins to each closed jump ring. Since I had large holes on my bead cone, I needed to add a bead to the eye pins, before I could put the eye pin through the bottom of the bead cone. I added another bead at the top, for design purposes.
Then attached the eye pins to the clasp by bending the eye pin right above the black beads and forming a loop, then wrapped the little tail around the eye pin under the loop and that's it.
