How to open and close a Jump Ring

To open and close a jump ring you need two pairs of pliers. The thinner and smaller the pliers the better. You can do it with one pair if you have strong fingers! The trick is to close it up a little bit before you twist it shut. This will keep some tension in it and ensure it stays tightly shut.
