Attaching a bead to a jumpring
Today I was going through my old image files and found an interesting image I created in Photoshop a few years ago, which shows how to attach a bead to a jumpring. This element could be used as a link on a chain, for interest.
It's pretty self-explanatory, but here is the step by step:
1) Find a bead which will fit inside a soldered jumpring. The bead should be just a tiny bit smaller than the inside of the ring.
2) Thread the bead onto a piece of wire, and loop each end around the jumpring once.
3) Wrap each end of the wire around the itself, inbetween the bead and ring.
4) Wrap a second time and trim both ends.
