How to make jump ringsSeptember 18, 2009
These little fellas are really helpful. They make a perfect hook and eye clasp when used with an S hook. They can also be used to make chains, chain maille, or dangling things. :)
- Wire cutters
- Crochet or knitting needles (to get exact measurements). Round pens can also be used.
Wrap the wire in a tight coil around the needle or pencil.
Take the coil off of the needle and cut out individual rings.
To open the jump rings, pinch the ring in a pair of needlenose pliers and gently pull. To shut, gently pinch pliers around the ring.
Tah-dah!!! Alot easier than it looks!
