Step 21: Grasp the loop with your bent chain nose pliers as shown at right.
Step 22: Wrap the wire around the wire segment between the end cone and the loop about 2-3 times until the space between the loop and the end cone is filled with wrapped wire. See the picture below-left.
Step 23: Cut the excess wire with your flush cutter. After cutting the excess wire, continue holding the loop with your bent chain nose pliers and using a second pair of chain nose pliers, squeeze and twist the cut end of the wire until the wire lays flat as shown below center-left.
Step 24: At this point your clasp and end cone should appear as shown below center-right.
Step 25: Begin stringing your beads. If you use beads that have a large enough hole, string the beads on both strands of bead stringing wire. If the beads won't accommodate both strands of wire, cut the short wire segment. If the beads will accommodate both wire strands, don't cut the wire. Having both strands of the bead stringing wire through the beads makes the connection between the bead stringing wire and the clasp stronger. Continue stringing beads until you have all of the beads strung on the bead stringing wire.
