What you need:
  • Two pair of pliers. They can be out of a tool box, or from the dollar store.
  • Optional:  a pair of reader glasses   I always have a pair of 2.0 to 2.5 that I get at the dollar store.  They kind of work as magnifying glasses for me. 

  1.   Hold the jump ring with the two pliers on each side of the ring and the split in the ring at 12:00.
  2.   To open the jump ring, push (or you could say twist) on pair of plier toward you and the other away from you.
  3.   Slip the charm on and then slip on to the bracelet.
  4.   Reverse the steps to close.

If you are more of a visual person, I found this video.  (By the way, you don't have to have fancy pliers like the video for this. Regular old pliers will do.)
