Using 2 inch pin head and cutting pliers cut the flat part of the pin head off. With round nose pliers, starting at an end, roll one end into a circle. Place bead on wire. Cut wire on top of bead, leaving ample room to roll circle on the other end. Repeat this step until all beads have wire through them.
    Open jump ring at cut with flat pliers and round nose pliers, lightly pull in opposing direction. Repeat this on both sides of the bead to get jump ring through one hole, linking beads together.
    To make accent dangle from beads on the chain, use pinhead (without cutting flat part off) and place a small bead on, followed by a larger bead. Cut excess metal off and roll as in previous step. Attach using jump ring.
    Cut two pieces of the curb chain about 8 inch long each. These pieces can be cut shorter or longer depending on desired length. Link the clasp together (came with chain).
    Cut another piece of the curb chain about 9 inch long. Using jump rings, link the chain to each end of the bead chain.
