Step 26: When you have all of the beads strung, you need to make a 22 gauge wire component like the wire component that you completed in step 6 on page 14. This requires following steps 1 through 6 again. When you have that wire component completed you need to wrap the bead stringing wire through the loop in the wire component. At this point you need to make your knot in the bead stringing wire around the loop of wire. When you have completed the knot, thread the end of the wire through the first few beads on the string. Tighten the knot and remove the slack in the wire until there is about 1/8 to 3/16" of wire between the beads and the loop.
Step 27: Once the slack is out of the wire, grasp the loop with your bent chain nose pliers as you did in step 8. Then wrap the 22 gauge wire around the bead stringing wire as you did in step 10. Wrap the 22 gauge wire about 2 to 3 times around the bead stringing wire, until the gap between the loop and the beads is filled.
Step 28: Cut the excess 22 gauge wire with your flush cutter. Continue holding the loop in your bent chain nose pliers and using a second pair of chain nose pliers, squeeze and twist the wire until the cut end lays flat.
Step 29: Using your flush cutter, cut the excess bead stringing wire.
Step 30: As we did on the first end, add the end cone to the wire and push the end cone all the way down as you did in step 12, and 13. Using your bent chain nose pliers, grasp the wire immediately above the end cone and bend the wire 90 degrees as shown below-right.
Step 31: Finish the necklace by making a loop at the top using your round nose pliers, adding the clasp, then wrapping the wire to hold the clasp permanently. Follow steps 19 through 23. When you have completed this step, the clasp should appear as shown at right.
