    String 43 Silver/Black mirror beads onto the joined wire ends on one side of the crimp bead in step #9. Slide one more crimp bead onto the joined wire ends, Thread the wires through the single Black chain link from step #8, then back through the crimp bead and close the crimp.

    Find the joined wire ends from the other wire from step #9. String one Silver/Black mirror bead onto one wire end, slide each wire end in opposite directions through one crimp bead at a distance approximately 2 inch away from the beginning crimp bead, string one 16 mm Black mesh bead onto one wire end, slide each wire end in opposite directions through one crimp bead at a distance approximately 2 inch away from the previous crimp bead, string one Silver/Black mirror bead onto one wire end, slide each wire end in opposite directions through one crimp bead at a distance approximately 2 inch away from the previous crimp bead, string one 16 mm Black mesh bead onto one wire end, etc. until you have added on a total of five Silver/Black mirror beads, four 16 mm Black mesh beads, and nine crimp beads. (You will have a series of open wire loops with two wire ends hanging out from the last crimp tube.) Set aside.
