A gathering place for jewelry makers to share ideas, make friends, & to have fun

If you use a Jump Ringer to make rings for chainmaille, here is a quick tip that will help to enhance the shine of your masterpieces. Right after I cut the coil I string a piece of thin copper wire through the rings leaving enough room to twist the two ends together. I then toss this ring of cut rings into the tumbler. This will help to clean and shine the rings before using them for chainmaille jewelry. It’s an optional step but I find that it helps with the overall quality of my jewelry creations and I don’t have to tumble the final piece quite as long. It’s also much easier to remove the wire with rings out of the tumbler as opposed to picking out the individual rings from the steel shot :-)
