Making Jumprings

Making jumprings using the Step Mandrels

Jumpring Mandrels

Step 1: Gather tools + materials – jumpring mandrels, flush cutters, wire

Step 2: Wrap a length of wire around the step (size) you desire.  Create a coil, concentrating on each wrap being close to the one before.  This will create a more uniform, easy to work with jump ring.

Step 3: Slide coil off of mandrel and begin to cut with your flush cutters.

Step 4: Turn the cutters – alternate facing the flush end right and left – to create a flat end for each side of the rings.
