JumpringsSecond step is pretty easy. Opening and closing jump rings. With two pairs of flat nose pliers, twist the ring apart. Do not pull it. To close it back, just twist it past the middle until the natural spring of the metal align the ends to a tight, closed position. You should hear a “click”.  Voila!

What is happening?

Teaching continues…

imageI always tell my customers about the three basic principles in jewelry making. This helps simplifying the learning process.

#1 Stringing and crimping is your very first basic step

Crimp beads
Learn how to make a flattened crimp, folded crimp, and folded crimp end to finish your necklace, bracelet, or other jewelry project.

The hardest for the client is to figure out the pattern, the color scheme and the embellishment if needed. Also important is the type of stringing, wire, elastic or fireline used in the project. As well as not leaving space between the beads using gravity instead of forcing it. Just a few tricks to help them along in their project. Ciao for now!!
