How to make jump rings

September 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. :)

Your materials:

  • Wire
  • Wire cutters
  • Crochet or knitting needles (to get exact measurements). Round pens can also be used.
Step One
Wrap the wire in a tight coil around the needle or pencil.

Step Two 
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!
