I hate those too! I read that there is a tool you can buy to use for those. I don't know what exactly it's called but it looks like pliers with a bent end. Sorry I'm not much help.

DEFINITELY buy the tool! We did 300 caps for our Christmas show and only had our split ring tool for the last couple dozen. SO much easier. And if you don't have it, order the hole punch, too. Saves so much time. (and after my husband drilled his finger doing the holes in bottlecaps, we were very happy we had the hole-punch on order!)

I have never seen the split ring pliers! I don't ever work with jewelry but I thought I would do some bottlecap necklaces as fillers. I finally finished them yesterday but my fingers are soooooo sore!
