Single-Strand Necklace with Oh! Ring™ Rubber Components and Sterling Silver Jumprings

Oh! Ring rubber rings are available in a host of colors and multiple sizes. Combine them with silver-plated jumprings to create necklaces and bracelets that simply shout 'Oh My'!
STEP 1
Using the flat-nose pliers, open all silver-plated jumprings.
STEP 2
Place 4 Oh! Rings onto 1 open jumpring; close the jumpring. Link a second jumpring through the 4 Oh! Rings; close the jumpring.
Separate the rings so the silver jumprings are in between two sets of Oh! Rings. Link a paperclip through 2 Oh! Rings on either end.
STEP 3

Hold the paperclip in your hand so the rings are above your hand. Flip the top 2 Oh! Rings to either side of the silver rings below. Regrip the chain in the same manner but also so you're holding the Oh! Rings, which were just dropped, between your thumb and forefinger; separate the silver jumprings.
STEP 4

Pass a jumpring through the tops of the 2 Oh! Rings showing between the silver jumprings. Add 2 Oh! Rings to this jumpring, then close the jumpring. Pass a second silver jumpring through the same path as the silver jumpring just added.
If you hold your growing chain upside down, it should look like this, if it doesn't, try again before going on to the next step.
STEP 5
Add 2 silver jumprings to the Oh! Rings added in Step 4.
STEP 6
While holding the chain between your thumb and forefinger, flip the top 2 jumprings down to either side; regrip so you're now holding the flipped jumprings between your thumb and forefinger.
STEP 7
Separate the 2 Oh! Rings so the silver jumprings are showing. Pass a jumpring through the 2 silver jumprings; close. Repeat, adding a second jumpring.
STEP 8
Add 1 jumpring to the 2 silver jumprings added in Step 7, add 2 Oh! Rings to this jumpring; close the jumpring. Add a second jumpring.
STEP 9
Repeat Steps 3 - 8 until you reach the length you'd like your chain to be.
STEP 10
Carefully open 1 of the last jumprings and add 2 Oh! Rings; close the jumpring. Carefully open the other "last" jumpring and link on the 2 Oh! Rings; close the jumpring.
STEP 11
Add 1 jumpring to each set of Oh! Rings on the beginning of the chain; remove the paperclip.
STEP 12
On 1 end of the chain, add several single jumprings, and before closing the last jumpring, add an Oh! Ring, if you'd like.
STEP 13
Link the 8mm jumpring through the last jumpring on the other end of the chain, add your lobster clasp; close the jumpring.

Your chain is now complete--enjoy!
