Bulk Jump Rings
- Bulk jump rings are essential connectors for jewelry making. Use jump rings to connect clasps to necklaces and bracelets, or charms to earrings and charm bracelets, and so much more!
- Basemetal (plated) jump rings can be soft soldered, and sterling silver and raw copper jump rings can be hard soldered.
- See Weave Got Maille for excellent colorful jump rings for chain maille.
Jump Ring Hint:
When you open and close jump rings, twist ends instead of "ovaling" them.
This keeps their round shape better, which makes them easier to close neatly and securely.
Many people find it easier to grip jump rings with round-nose pliers,
but flat-nose and chain-nose pliers make it easier
to grip your jump ring without leaving tiny dents.
For best control, try using
a pair of chain-nose pliers in one hand,
and a pair of bent flat-nose pliers in the other hand
