Storing Jump Rings
by Judy Larson
Here's one way to store all you different jump rings, by size, by metal, by gauge. All easily identifiable.
Instructions
I am not a chain mailer so don't have large quantities of any size of jump rings. When I make jump rings for a project, I make just a few more than I need in case I might need a couple in that size for a later project. The jump rings are stored in little closable bags I have labeled with the wire size and mandrel size I used to make them.

When cleaning out a closet, I found some old baseball card storage pages that belonged to my son when he was young (he is now 42 so you know how long it took me to get to that closet!) and I had an epiphany. The little bags easily slide into and out of the baseball card sections. The labels show through the plastic sleeves. The little bags are no longer a jumbled mess in a box and I can easily find what I need or see if I need to make a few more.
