3. String 14-1/2" of beads along the length of the tiger tail. To not finish or crimp the end – secure with a piece of tape to hold the beads on.
4. Continue to string beads on every piece of tiger tail in the same way, until there are beads strung on all 13 pieces of 20" tiger tail, tape the open end of each.

6. Finish the ends by adding a lobster clasp to the ends of the chain, using a jump ring.
