How To: Open and close jump rings

Open and close jump rings

In this tutorial, Artbeads gives us a tip on how to open and close jump rings on a bracelet. First, take a pair of chain nose pliers and hold one side of the jump ring. Then, take a pair of needle nose pliers and pull the other side of the jump ring. Twist the ring by twisting side to side with the pliers to open and then attach your charm. Don't open any other direction, this will cause the jump ring to become weak. Close it by pushing it back in the same side to side manner. Repeat this to attach the other end of the clasp and for any other charms you'd like to attach!
