Necklace Tutorial and Giveaway!

As you know, I have posted a couple tutorials about the necklaces I have made.  While making them, I had trouble with the jump rings.  You know the little rings that attach the charms or clasps to the chain?  I can't seem to get them to close just right.

Have you ever tried to fix a necklace that came apart or a charm that fell off?  Every time I try to put it back together I pull the little jump ring apart and it never goes back together right.  It overlaps itself and turns into more of an oval or it breaks.  If I do get it back together, I can't completely close it and it falls apart again!

I came across this awesome Untwistable Necklace tutorial at Chicken Scratch and found my solution!
Not to mention the beautiful necklaces she made!

The most simple solution is to "twist" the jump ring open instead of pulling it open!

DUH!

She has wonderful pictures in the tutorial.
She also has a giveaway going on for a chance to win one of her necklaces!
WooHoo!!
