Jump Rings, Split Rings & Bails
Jump rings are the most useful component you could possibly have in your bead stash. The jump ring is a circular piece of hardened wire where the two cut ends are brought together to make a ring. We sell open sterling silver jump rings and a more economical plated version. We use the term open because there is a split in the ring allowing you to ywist the ring open and then close it again whereas a closed ring is one where the split or cut has been soldered. The jump ring is a very versatile jewellery finding as it used for a variety of jobs from hanging a pendant from a chain to chain maille jewellery, where various patterns are created by linking the jump rings together.
