Default I Seriously Hate Jump Rings

I hate Jump Rings. I especially hate when my charm falls off. These rough kids could shake the charm off Ms Manners. I tricked them though. I got some jb weld and used a toothpick to put a little bit where the ring meets. Lets see if they can knock it off tomorrow. LOL

I primarily use split rings too (I HATE jump rings) but in a pinch when jump rings are all I have I break out the stash and bat my eyes at the hubby to solder them for me

Well I gave up on my hubby using the solder on them. He acted like he didn't hear me. I even told him he could show me how so I could do my own. I am picking up split rings today.

the thing about the jb weld is you can only mix up a small dab at a time because it gets hard in about 4 minutes.

Lol - I'm so glad I saw this post - I was just going to ask something similar! I had the same problem with the jump rings. I guess I'll try making the move to the split rings! Thanks ladies !

Default Re: I Seriously Hate Jump Rings

When I first started making jewelry years ago I hated jump rings. They always came undone and people were constantly losing their charms and clasps would always come undone where I attached them with a jump ring. But, then, oh then, I discovered Snapeez jump rings. They are self soldering. You use two pairs of chain nose pliers to add them to jewelry. It makes a snapping sound when it solders itself and it's impossible, impossible I tell ya', to get them undone. I have NEVER had one come undone and I'm pretty rough on bracelets.

They have them in sterling silver, but I use the Ultraplate version. It's 99.9% pure silver ultraplate and very, very durable. It's shiny like sterling, doesn't tarnish, doesn't discolor, and always looks like sterling silver. They are about $1.70 less than the sterling ones. They come in gold, and copper, as well.

Here is a video on how they work:

I promise, I'm not a spokesperson for Snapeez. LOL! I just love them!

I get mine here: http://www.finedings.net/newsniiul.html

Hope this helps.
