Whilst it is open, also thread it through the end of the second longer length of chain. Close securely.

Open up another jump ring. Thread it through the end of the shorter length of chain on the left hand side. Whilst it is still open, also thread it through the longer length of chain on the left hand side. Whilst it is still open, also thread on the parrot clasp. Close securely.
