  48. Create a "chain" of five matte gold jump rings, connecting one end of the chain to the wrapped wire loop on one of the bead cones, and connecting the other end of the chain to the wrapped wire loop on top of the head pin dangle.
  49. Open another matte gold jump ring and use it to attach the matte gold lobster clasp to the wrapped wire loop on the bead cone at the other end of the necklace. Close the jump ring again.
