Jump rings

Making your own jump ring is fun, quick and easy to make. Although, Round nose pliers or mandrel is generally used. You can also use regular objects work really well. The objects you use will determine the size of your jump rings, eg; a marker is perfect if you want to make larger jump rings.

This tut is from my eBook on Jewelry making clasps, which went live on Sunday night. Contact me via my site for more info.
