Default HELP with making a bottlecap necklace, PLEASE!

Hi everyone. I have learned soo much from this forum, and I wanted to thank you all for that. I am a lurker, only because I am new to all of this, so I have nothing to contribute!

Anywho, I am attempting to make bottlecap necklaces, and I am stuck on how to add the beading to the bottom of the bottlecap! I have tried doing a search here on the forum and on the net and haven't come up with anything. Iam attaching a pic I found on Etsy of what I mean for example only:




My question is what are the findings called that I will need, what are the little orange beads called and the little silver end bead called?

I also need to know what tools I will need, and step-by-step instructions on how to do this, along with how to wrap the wire (I am a jewelry newbie-only used to making hair bows!)

Thank you all so much in advance!

Okay, it's a head pin (with silver bead on the bottom), round crystal, bicone crystal and metal beads. Check on Fire Mountain, they have everything.
