HardCandy63,

  You can actually buy some jump ring pliers that are designed to make it easy to close jump rings. Jump ring pliers have a nose that looks like this () if you look at them head on. They are designed to close the jump ring uniformly and work rather well. Much easier to use than trying to get two pairs of pliers to cooperate.   Cheesy

Jump ring pliers are the best tool I have found to use on them. If you can't find those small needle nose pliers work just fine.
