Question How to tighten the O rings? (Bottlecap Necklace)

Hi Guys,

I made some bottlecap necklaces. I have all my bottlecaps drilled. After I insert the O ring in, how do I make sure that the ring is closed tight enough? Is there a way you guys ensure that its' closed tight enough so that the bottlecap doesnt fall off?

I tried clamping it before and some of the bottlecaps still fell off. Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help!!!

I would suggest to not use O rings - or jump rings - get some split rings and you will not have problems with your caps coming off! Get a split ring tool to help out - saves your fingernails!!!

You can't really get a jump ring closed well enough that the cap won't fall through. You need a split ring (like a tiny keychain).

I have got to get some split rings and a split ring tool. Tomorrow that is on the top of my list.

I just use a tiny dab of super glue on the jump rings. It doesn't show up if you use just a dab and it keeps the caps from falling off.
