Step One - Prepare Extension Chain:

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

2.  Twist open one 5mm jump ring.  Add the loop of the crystal drop you just created and the last link of one end of the cable chain.  Twist the jump ring closed.

Step Two - Create Bracelet:

1. Take one end of your Buddy Braids wire and thread 1 crimp tube approximately an inch from the end.  Thread the loop of your lobster clasp.  Thread the end back through the crimp tube.  Using crimping pliers (or any pliers you have) squeeze the crimp tube about a 1/8th of an inch away from the clasp.  Leave the excess you will thread the beads over both ends.

3.  Thread 1 crimp tube and 1 split ring.  Thread the wire back through the crimp tube after going through the split ring.  Thread the wire through the last several beads (see below).  Using your pliers, squeeze the crimp tube about a 1/8th of an inch away from the split ring.  Trim the excess wire as close to the bead as you can.

4. Twist open one 5mm jump ring; add the split ring from Step 3 and the Extension Chain you created earlier (use the end without the dangle).  Close the jump ring.

You’re done!!  This kit will make a bracelet that is 7 inches to 9 inches long.  To close the bracelet simply hook  your clasp to any loop on the chain.  If you need the bracelet to be smaller leave off several beads from either side!!
