C. Semi-drilled bead clamp - Allows you to use your semi-drilled beads as a pendant

1. Thread the shank of the pendant clip through the desired pendant, then thread the shank through the hole on the other end of the pendant clip
2. Fold the excess rod upwards to stiffen the assembly

G. Bead Pendant Attachment - To hold your choice of pendants - For use with a chain, an additional ring will be required
