How To - open and close a jump ring

Hello friends!

I'm posting my first jewelry-making tutorial today.  Simply how to open and close a jump ring.  Sometimes when beginning a new hobby we have to start from the ground up.  The same goes for jewelry making.
A jump ring is a little circle of wire that is used to connect segments of your jewelry together.  There are open and closed jump rings.  An open jump ring has a slit in the wire so that you can bend the circle open and shut. A closed jump ring is solid all the way around and other segments of jewelry must be added to it.

 In this video I show you how to open and close a jump ring (or any loop really) without distorting it's circular shape.

If you have any questions please let me know!
