    I've got one of those. Don't use it if I've got 1 or 2 rings to do, but it's good for when I'm using loads

      I have one, can use it fine for opening rings, just not closing them again, its back to the two pairs of pliers for that.

        I use one and get on with it really well. I've really struggled since I've lost it somewhere in the abyss that is my jewellery making stuff!

            Our jump ring mate tool is really popular, although personally I prefer using two pairs of snipe nose pliers, which are good for getting into small spaces or attaching lots of beads and things onto charm bracelets.

              Good point!! Sorry about that!

              Personally I prefer using two pairs of pliers because I am usually making fiddly things with lots of beads and things attached closely together and the fine tips of the snipe nose pliers are great for this... Mind you when I'm making charm bracelets I usually hang them on a stand I've made so that I have both hands free to use the pliers -it works really well like this!

                The little stand i have made is really basic, but it does really help with charm bracelets to make sure you hang the charms all on the same side of the links, so that it hangs right - i just found it much quicker to make doing it like this and less of a fiddle.
