3.  You can leave your bracelet like this, or add a longer charm feature on your bracelet. To do this, create a chain of five jump rings, attaching a button to the first and last jump ring. With the three central jump rings, attach three more jump rings with buttons on each ring. Add the extra chain to the bracelet to finish.
