Making Jump Rings
This video will show how I make jumps rings. I use 18 gauge wire that I get from www.riogrande.com where I purchase all of my sterling silver.
Wrapping the wire around the ring mandrel will create perfect circles. Once the coil has been made, stretching out the coil slightly will give enough room to cut the rings with smooth edges. Flipping the flush wire cutters back and forth will allow a smooth cut on each side of the jump ring.
Jump rings are used in making pendants, earrings, and connecting two stone settings together. Watch my video to see each step in creating your own jumps rings at a low price.
