Add black beads to your hook

Tie on black thread and begin securing the the beads in the position you want them to be in.
NOTE: You may also use crazy glue in place of tying thread to hold the beads in position on the hook.

Beads in position.

Trim the thread and coat the beads with epoxy or one of the UV curing acrylic goo's. If you are using one of the goo's that remain tacky after drying, overcoat the goo with Sally Hansen Hard as Nails fingernail polish.

Reattach the thread and tie in a black hackle.

Wrap the hackle forward and tie off. Trim off the tying thread.
