Tuesday's Tip

Today's tip is about jumprings. When using a jumpring to hold a heavier dangle or bead use 2 jumprings as part of the design.Another great way to keep beads from falling off is use oval jumprings as the opening is on the side and is harder for the bead to wiggle out of! Don't forget to leave your favorite jewelry making tip in the comments section,you could be the winner of this months Lampwork bead, a beautiful Teal green focal bead.
