  5. Attach the jump rings to the bar and then to the end of the chain. Cut the chain at the half way point opposite of the bar. Using your Hole Punch Pliers, create a hole in your pendant and attach to your chain with a jump ring. Attach the remaining jump rings, one to the chain and one to connect your clasp to the chain.
