How do I use jump rings?
To open and close a jump ring, hold one side of the jump ring (with the slit at the top) using a pair of flat nose pliers, hold the other side of the jump ring with another pair of flat nose pliers or round nose pliers. Open the jump ring moving one hand toward you and the opposite hand away from you.
NEVER open a jump ring by pulling it apart as this will weaken the support of a jump ring. To close the jump ring, simply reverse the direction of the one hand toward you and the other hand away from you.
