Materials Used To make The  Project

Quick Project Steps

Identify the type of ring needed for your project (jump, split, or soldered).
Select the appropriate gauge and diameter for the ring based on your design requirements.
For jump rings, use two pairs of pliers to open the ring by twisting the ends in opposite directions, avoiding distortion.
Thread the ring through the components you're connecting.
Close the ring by twisting the ends back into place, ensuring a tight closure.
For more durability or specific design needs, consider making your own rings using wire and a mandrel.
