Jump For Jump Rings

Usually, I buy my findings but have decided to branch out a bit. Reading Mindset by Carol Dwek, Ph.D., got me to hop out of my comfort zone. I’ve seen people make their own jump rings and tried a few times, unsuccessfully. The ends of my rings would never line up because my wire nippers left an angled cut.

I finally bought a pair of flush cutters (above) and I’m in production mode!

Have you tried making your own findings?  I’d love to hear your adventures with wire.

Join me at the Michaels in Springfield for the Velvet Drop Chandelier Earrings class where I’ll teach you how to make jump rings in any size you desire and incorporate them into a lovely pair of earrings you’ll be proud to wear!  Registration is $15, and only 3 supplies needed; you’ll even make your own ear wires and wear these lovelies home!

      Thanks Geraldine! I love making earrings too. They’re usually quick. With this pair, I made lots of extra jump rings so that my next pair won’t take as long to put together.
