Step 1

Grasp the jump ring on either side of the opening with two pairs of chain nose pliers.

Step 2

Open the jump ring by moving one side towards you and the other side away from you.

Step 3

Hook a link of your chain into the open jump ring.

Step 4

Add your charm to the open jump ring.

Step 5

To close your jump ring, grasp the jump ring on either side of the opening with two pairs of chain nose pliers.

Step 6

Move the sides of the jump ring back and forth, moving the two sides closer together.

Step 7

Continue moving back and forth until the sides are touching and the jump ring is closed.

Step 8

Your charm is now securely attached to your chain!
