I made a floating bead necklace (sort of) on a really thin---1mm--- chain.  There are no holes in this chain where I can connect jump rings or clasps.   How the heck can I finish this?

 PS   I have on end on my finger, one is on the paper....cell phone pic, I hope you can tell....

Oh....I tried a cord end---the folding metal one----but the chain is so thin, it looks  totlly gawky----way oversized

Windy......... ok, the smallest cord end I can find is in Fire Mtn. and it is 4 x 1mm tube type and that should be right for your 1mm chain. Look up Fire Mtn #H20-4767FD. FMG says glue optional, I say glue mandatory. Hope this is what you need. I haven't done this sort of jewelry construction in ages, and all the new wires and cords are much nicer and thinner too....... Donna
