You can usually get several different sizes of jump rings at bead or craft stores. As for chain you usually buy lenths of it like you would ribbon. All my local bead shops have a decent selection in different sizes and colours so try a bead shop in your area or even online.

yeah, me too. I'm going to Toronto in a couple weekends though, can anyone direct me as to where to get them there? preferably in North Toronto or somewhere easily accessible from there, not like way the hell out in sarnia or something.

Chain and jump rings are usually available at craft stores and are often in the bead sections.  Just take a minute or two to look because sometimes it's easy to overlook things in that department (so many small packages!)...I usualy buy my stuff at Michael's or at A.C. Moore, though if you're going to be making a lot of earrings (like to sell or just for lots of fun!) it might be cheaper to order online. I usually order from www.artbeads.com, they've got lots to choose from and shipping is usually free.  Anyway good luck with your beading, and if you're looking for a cute project you could try Luxe's tutorial for chandelier earrings, they're very nice and not difficult at all to make!

I get a lot of chain at thrift shops or yard sales.  Old neclaces are great for it, if they have a few knots no big deal, you just cut them out.
