Step 12:  Now we need to begin making the bead link wire component.  Begin by cutting and straightening a piece of wire 1 1/2 inches long.  Make a loop in the end of the jewelry wire.  Using the instructions provided here, make this loop into an eye loop

Step 13:  Add a bead to this jewelry wire and using the instructions provided here, make a loop above the bead.  Orient this second loop perpendicular to the first loop.  If you are comfortable making a wrapped bead link as described here, you can use that component here.
