This guide will show you how to use a Jump Ring Opener. This handy little tool is a perfect time saver, especially if you are making Chain Maille jewellery or hanging charms from a bracelet. It is a low cost item that is essential for anyone who makes jewellery. Jump rings can be fiddly to open but this tool makes it a very easy job.

The Jump Ring Opener can fit many different size and thickness of jump rings, It does not have to fit at the bottom of your finger (where you would normally wear a ring). It is much easier to use when it is held towards the top of your index finger.
