How I Make Handmade Oval Jump Rings

I wanted to share something…I may be behind and you all may be very adept at jump ring creations.
I was at a show last weekend and asked my favorite tool guy about a jump ring making tool…for ‘oval’ jump rings. I’ve made the round ones for years, and I needed some very small oval rings. He said he didn’t know of any…driving home I had an epiphany…
I took an old worn needle file, went to my grinder and shaped it to a slightly smaller oval than the rings I needed. Worked very well and I now have some tiny oval jump rings for my project.
I used a needle file primarily for the small size. I have no doubt an old screw driver would work also. If you have already worked this out, great. If not, give it a try~
