I was working on new jewelry pieces and didn't have the proper size jump rings in stock. I didn't want to take a trip to Hobby Lobby just to purchase jump rings.
So I took silver plated wire that I had on hand, my tools and watched some You Tube videos. Success - I created the jump rings that I needed. I still need to work on my jump ring skills. However making the jump rings wasn't as difficult as I anticipated.
If you're new to creating jump rings, I suggest watching a couple of short videos on how to make jump rings. I noticed some 30-minute videos that were too complex. If the surface edges of your jump rings are not flat, after you make your cuts, trim the edges to achieve a better connection.
