The i-cord makes a tube, so you just slide your beads into the tube. After each bead, thread the jump rings onto the i-cord using the "tail" of your yarn. These are a lot of fun to make. I have also used this pattern to make lanyards to hold my id at work.

The way I did it was I pulled the end of the yarn through the last stitches, but left it very loose so there was room to get the beads in, then closed it up after all the beads were in.

I got the cord made but I cannot get the beads in as they keep falling out of the tube. I couldn't wait to make this necklace but it is just very frustrating.
