  • What do I do now?

    I've had a few probs with the varnish on my pendants ie: it wasn't drying, but it's resolved now thank goodness. I've got my key chains and bag chains and I'm almost ready to put them together but.....how? On the end of the chain there is a small (very small) jump ring, is this what I'm meant to loop through the pendant hole or should I be using bigger ones? Also, what tool do I need to use? Sorry to be long winded but it seems every time I think I'm getting there, something else crops up!

    You need some pliers to open up the ring and then you can put it through the hole and use the pliers to close it again

      If you're only making small charms then I'd suggest that you thread beads onto a headpin and attach the headpin to the small loop. You might need to use a jumpring to do this.

      If your pendants aren't too big then again, use head pins and jumprings.

      If you're using larger pendants, then you'd need to make/attach a bail to be able to fix it to your chains.

      HTH.

        Thank you both. I do have a pair of (rusty) pliers that I can use Louise, lol. I'll post a pic if and when I ever get this finished!

            I'd give the rusty pliers a clean up 1st as the marks they leave are a pain to try to remove and if they are engineering pliers (with the serrated jaws) put a couple of wraps of insulation tape around each half of the jaws to prevent scratching
