Cut a piece of your string. Now string your beads starting with your neon bead  followed by your spike. It should be bead spike bead spike pattern.

Continue until you’ve used all your beads and spikes.  I used 13 spikes and 14 neon beads.

Add your tube to the end of your string and use your pliers to press it closed. If you have any super glue lying around put a little in the tube before attaching.
