Default where do I find these?

I was hoping someone would know where I can buy the jump rings that you use to make wine charms with polyshrink. I have looked in Michaels and they don't have them. I even looked on the web www.exolite for them and they don't sell them either. Can anyone help?

Thanks- Theresa

Default Jump rings

I've found mine in the jewelry section in Ben Franklin.

Where did you look at Michael's?? Try the section where they have the beads and jewelry findings. If not, try Hobby Lobby (they have a huge jewelry section) or Joann's. You can get them at Joann.com too! Have fun!

Any bead shop will have them.

You can also make jump rings by wrapping wire around a small round object (dowel or pen) in whatever diameter you want your jump rings to be. Then slide the dowel out of the coil of rings, take a pair of wire cutters and cut straight through the coil, lengthwise. Voila - you'll have as many jump rings as you have coils of wire. The thicker the wire (the lower the gauge of wire), the tighter your jump rings will be.

HTH!

What keywords do you enter at joann's? I tried and they keep coming up with no matches. I would love to be near a hobby lobby, but am unfortunately not. I also do not have the Craft Basket anymore. That was the better craft store by me.

Thanks- Theresa

Are you talking about the little jumprings, or the ring that goes around the stem of the glass? For that, I use the ready-made "hoop" earrings that I got at Michael's. They are really like an eye pin bent into a loop, and the "tail" slips through the "eye" and is slightly bent to hold it in place. HTH
