Step One - Prepare Extension Chain:

1.  Create drop for the end of chain by adding 1 - Brecciated Jasper 6mm Semiprecious Round, 1 - Gunmetal 1.5x4mm Beaded Rondelle, and 1 - Black 4x3mm Crystal Rondelle to a ball pin.  Using a pair of round nose pliers create a 90° bend in the ball pin above the beads.  Holding the ball pin where you created the bend wrap the ball pin around the pliers to create a loop.  Then wrap the ball pin around itself below the loop as many times as you can.  Trim the excess ball pin you could not wrap around.
