Cut three lengths of the Bead Landing™ chain.
Take a head pin and feed it through a seed bead and then through a lampwork bead.
Bend the pin to form a right angle. Cut the pin approximately ¼" beyond the bead. Use the round end of your pliers to grasp the end of the pin and curve the pin by using a rolling motion to fold it over a single round prong. You may need to release the pin and continue the rolling motion again. Be sure to start rolling from the end of the pin. This will give you a good round loop and sturdy connection. Repeat for every bead in the lampwork strand.
Distribute the beads throughout the chain lengths. Open a link in the chain with jewelry pliers. Place one beaded head pin on the link. Close with jewelry pliers. Repeat this step for every beaded head pin.
