How to Replace a Broken Necklace Clasp
First, open the jump ring on the necklace that is attached to the broken lobster clasp. To open, use 2 pairs of jewelry pliers or even needle nose pliers and pinch each side of the ring. Twist one hand forward and the other hand backward. Don’t pull the pliers straight apart because this will change the shape of the ring and it will no longer be nice and round.
Remove the broken clasp and slip the new lobster clasp onto the open ring.
To close the jump ring, use the two pairs of pliers again each pinching a side of the jump ring and with a rocking motion close the jump ring so it is nice and tight.
And that is all there is to it. I told you it was easy!
And here is my happy girl. Mom to the rescue once again.
