  2. Attach a crimp bead with loop to one end of the chain.
  3. Slide your long faceted tapered tube agate bead onto the chain.
  4. Attach a crimp bead with loop to the other end of the beading chain.
  5. Open a jump ring and attach it to one of the crimp beads with loops. Close the jump ring.
  6. On the other side of the necklace open another jump ring and attach it to the crimp tune with loop and the jump ring attached to your lobster clasp. Close the jump ring.
