String onto the beading wire: one crimp and one Accu-Guard™ wire protector. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp.

String the following onto a 2-inch headpin: one half of the magnetic barrel clasp (magnetic end first) and one Hemalyke rainbow 4mm round bead. Create a wrapped loop.

Pass one 4mm jumpring through the wrapped loop and the Accu-Guard on one end of the strand then close.

Repeat Step 6 to create the second half of the magnetic clap and connect it to the opposite end of the strand to complete the necklace.
