  3. Open one jump ring and attach it to the end of one piece of chain. Close the jump ring.
  4. Move to the end of this piece of chain, open another jump ring and attach the 3 inches of gemstone chain. Close the jump ring.
  5. Move to the other end of the gemstone chain, open another jump ring and attach the second piece of 8 inch chain. Close the jump ring.
  6. At the end of this chain open another jump ring and attach a lobster clasp to the end. Close the jump ring.
