PandaHall Tutorial on How to Use Jump Rings to DIY Jewelry

Hello, guys, in the process of making jewelry, we know that jump rings play an important role, in many cases,  we use the jump rings to connect two parts, or to finish the ending of making. All in all, it is widely used in jewelry making. And today, let’s take a look at other ways to use the jump rings in jewelry making.

This is a chain necklace with a flower pendant, we just used some jump rings and red glass beads to make the flower pendant. The materials needed to make this necklace are simple, after you finished the pendant, this necklace is almost done, so, let’s talk about the pendant. Firstly, we prepare four larger jump rings, and two small jump rings, using the pliers to pull open the jump rings to make little gap, then we use the two small jump rings to make the four larger rings stay together. Then we add the glass beads to the larger rings, prepare six. After using pliers to pull open those jump ring with red glass beads, we use the six ring part we made at before to fix the glass bead jump ring, as picture shows! Following the same method to finish the rest part, at last, all the jump rings are fixed, then connect the pendant and the chains, tutorial ends!

This is a pair of jump ring earrings with glass pendant, the materials we need are simple, just use some jump rings, earring hooks and glass pendants, we can make a pair of beautiful earrings like this, and it’s very suitable for green hands. Actually, this making method is similar to the one we introduced in the above pendant necklace. Through using the small jump rings, we fixed the larger jump rings, then we made this pair of dangle earrings, if you like this simple type of earrings, you can try this!

These two bracelets listed above are of the same type, called simple seed bead bracelet, for the first one, we used round seed beads of different colors and jump rings to make it, and as for the second one, we just used 4mm red seed beads and jump rings to make this bracelet. We add the seed beads to the jump rings, and connect every two seed bead rings using jump rings. And you may notice the Tibetan style toggle clasps we used to end the bracelet, because it is rarely used in jewelry making, so if you want to try some clasps of other styles in your DIY jewelry, then there are actually plenty of styles in PandaHall, you can try new styles, and I believe that you will like these changes.

This is a pink pearl flower bracelet with jump rings. Are you like flowers and pearl beads? If yes, you can try this elegant bracelet, which is very easy to make. Let me show you how! At first, we used one jump ring to connect other five jump rings, then we use the jewelry wire to string the pink pearl beads, we separate pearl beads using the jump rings, so we can make a flower shape, and fix the pearl beads. Then you just need follow the same method to complete the rest. In addition, there are some other jewelry made of jump rings we haven’t listed yet, i am gonna show you guys the pictures of them, and you can think about how to make them, and try making them, welcome to leave you comments!

So after the above introduction, what did you get? Are you inspired? In fact, we may overlook many of these common accessories, but if you are creative and good at using them, they can also be used to make some beautiful and unique jewelry.

Isn’t it really annoying to create jewels and to always have these small chain scraps that are not able to use them in any other project? I have to admit that I have a small collection of such scraps and I just find a way to use them again for a bracelet! Let’s create it together!

Materials for Multi Strand Chain Bracelet:
Chain ( I have used three different types of chains)
– Jump Rings
Gold Toggle Clasp
– Head Pin
– Millefiori Bead

Step 1: First choose what chains are you going to use. I have used a gold plated chain, a turquoise and gold chain and a handmade beaded chain. Cut three pieces (one from each) in the same length.

Use a jump ring in each end of every chain and connect them to a larger jump ring.

Step 2: Finish the bracelet by using your favorite type of lobster (I have use a gold plated toggle clasp). The main body of your jewel is ready. You can enjoy it as it or add a small beautiful detail!
