Did you get inspiration for the first one? Because I've seen a pendant that looks just like that before.. wish I could find the picture.. hang on.
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / My nifty little invention to make jump rings on: November 05, 2009 08:11:34 AM
So I couldn't sleep last night due to a tooth ache and to kill time I was trying to finish a bracelet I've been working on. I made some jump rings using pliers that weren't quite working out.
So I googled how to make jump rings and found this nifty website:
http://jewelrymaking.allinfoabout.com/features/makejriing.html
I tried using a nail in place of the "wig jig" but I had trouble holding onto the wire as I wrapped and getting it straight and tight. So I had this nifty idea:

I took a block of wood, a metal piece with three holes, and a nail with the desired size for the jump rings. I used the metal piece to secure the nail to the board, and dilled two holes in the block of wood and threaded the wire through it. For extra security, I also used the screws holding the metal piece to the wood and wrapped the wire around them. From there, I was able to coil up the nail really easily and quickly. I also switched the nail out for different sizes. See?


Here are the plier made jump rings:

And my new and improved ones:

Hope this helps other wire-wrapping challenged individuals Smiley

But instead of using parentheses () use brackets []

I made these gifts for a few great ladies in my life. I wish I photographed the personalized boxes I made them, too.. they were cute. I took these photos before putting the chains on them.

I came to this board to report the Florida ad too - glad i'm not the only one who finds it extremely annoying. It makes it impossible for me to choose a community.
