There are headpins and eyepins. Headpins have a flat end, eyepins have a loop. Thread the bead(s) on the headpin (or eyepin) and then you need some pliers to make a loop. To attach to a chain, open the loop slightly, slide on the chain then close the loop again with the pliers (round nose)
Not looked at the tutorial yet, but hope this helps....
