Pull the tassel off of your fingers and cut the longer loop of threads so that the tassel is complete.

Cut two inches of loose chain. Add a jump ring to it and then add the jump ring to your 24 in chain necklace.
Put jewelry pins through the beads and bend them at one side and roll the other end to form a ring. Add a jump ring, and then add them to the 2 inch chain.
