Moore's official Jewelry Making Playlist on YouTube. Copy this link and paste into a new browser window: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL5A6A9BC5F69D5528

    Cut a half inch length of chain (6 links long). Slide an end link of the chain onto an eye pin. Cut six more lengths of chain, each length being two links longer than the one before it. Form a loop, making sure the loops on both ends of the eye pin are lined up in the same direction.
