    Do you have problems using 3mm jumprings? I do. What pliers do you hold them with? My needle nose pliers don’t hold things that well. What kind and what brand do you find work the best? I get frustrated with this tiny jump rings!! I want to make some of these but can’t use those tiny jump rings. Help!!

    doglover72, I use a mini bent nose plier with thinner tips to work with those tiny jumprings. The greater the bend on the end, the easier to open & close them because your hands, etc are out of the way. Hope that helps!
