Tips
  • Throughout the process you will be asked to attach elements together using jump-rings. In all cases have a pair of chain nose pliers, and a second pair of pliers ready. Open the jump-ring with the pliers by holding each side of the ring with a pair of pliers and turning your wrists slightly in opposite directions. Slide your elements onto the jump-ring and then secure the jump-ring by bringing the two open ends back together. Make sure to close the jump-rings tightly when you close them.
