This sterling silver twist-wire locking jump ring gives you the secure hold of a soldered seam without soldering. One end of the ring has a loop that fits over a rivet on the other end; close the ring by fitting the loop over the rivet and squeezing the rivet flat with your pliers. The twist wire catches the light, adding dimension and an eye-catching texture to your designs.Jump rings are made from coiled wire and have an opening that allows you to insert it through a ring, loop or hole on another finding. A staple of the jewelry-making industry, these rings are ideal as attach rings for component designs, as strand or chain ends, and as links for creating chain. Solder rings closed to ensure that connections are permanently secure.
