How to Use an Extender Chain

Have you ever made a necklace that is just a couple of inches too short for the wearer and you have to remake the whole thing? Or tried to guess what size to make a choker or bracelet for a gift. No fun! Extender chains are the simple answer to these dilemmas, and couldn't be easier to use. Following are three examples of how to use extender chains.
Simply attach an extender chain to a chain using an open jump ring. Remember, when using an open jump ring to always twist side to side, never open the ends away from one another. You will always want to use a lobster clasp that fits through the chain so that you can connect it to any link you like.
Attach a link to a chain with a small open jump ring and attach the extender chain to that link in the same way.
Place an extender on a satin necklace by simply attaching the chain to loop end of the necklace clasp. Again we used a jump ring.

You can select from several extender chains by clicking here or visiting the Silver Components section of the website and then clicking on Sterling Silver Extenders.
