How to harden too soft jump rings?
I know this may sound odd, but I was making a bracelet using 22 ga jump rings. I am sorta new at this and am learning.
The jump rings are too soft for the clasp and I don't own a tumbler or a raw hide hammer. And they don't seem to harden much at all when I work them back and forth.
I was thinking, I do have a battery operated bead spinner. I can sorta tilt it and maybe sort of tumble the jump rings for a short time. Will this harden them?
Any input would be appreciated. Also, is a rock tumbler the same as a jewelry tumbler?
Thanks a ton!
