Step One - Prepare the Extension Chain:

1.  Create crystal drop for the end of chain by adding the 6mm Crystal AB Bicone to the ball pin.  Using a pair of round nose pliers create a 90° bend in the headpin above the crystal.  Holding the headpin 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.
