Default Chain extender

I have recently started making beaded jewelry, such as the little keepsake infant bracelets. I had someone as me if I could put a chain extender on hers, so that her daughter could wear it for years to come. My question is what type of chain and what size would I want to get to cut and use as a chain extender like this : http://www.etsy.com/listing/68636161...er-kids-little


Thanks for any help.

when i make chain extenders i make the chain removeable for when they are young. the chain extender has a claw clip on it to attach to the lop on the one side and then the claw on the other side of the bracelette to attach to the extender does that makes sense, wish i had a picture

Yes, I understand that. Maybe I should have asked my question a little differently. I want to make my own chain extenders, by attaching my own claws and all. What I need to know is what size chain I need to buy and what type of chain to attach the claws to? Thanks so much for your help!

You can buy chain link by the yard...I know you can buy rolls of links at Micheals or Hobby Lobby for about 8 bucks.
I sometimes buy the small links of metal chain (silver plated)
that usually come about 80 inches on a wrap...and I tend to like the individual links 5-7mm . 5mm for babies bracelets and 7mm for everything else.
