If your dangling earring has suddenly fallen apart, making it unwearable, odds are the jump ring has opened a little too far. Although jump rings are made of soft, flexible metal, and fail easily and often, thankfully they're also very easy to repair.

To fix your jump ring, you only need a pair of tools that can be easily found in any hardware or arts-and-crafts store: two needle nose pliers.

As jump rings are very small, we recommend working in a well lit area.
