The orientation of the rings in the photo above matches up with our coding diagram on the next page. This orientation affects how any multi-ring animations will look!
Open your jump rings by twisting the wire ends away from each other with two pairs of pliers. Torque the wire ends, don't splay them.
Use your jump rings to attach the jewelry findings to one another, and also to attach a magnetic clasp.
Close jump rings the same way you opened them: twist the wire ends towards each other with two pairs of pliers until they match up.
Make sure that the wires are not under strain-- they should be long enough to allow the segments of the bracelet to move semi-freely without tugging. The metal findings/jump ring should be responsible for strain relief.
To add a power switch, cut and strip one of the wires leading to your battery.
Add two small pieces of heat shrink tubing to the stripped wires and solder to two legs of the small switch (center leg and one outer leg). Slide the heat shrink to cover the exposed metal and shrink with a heat gun.
Use a piece of foam tape to stick the battery behind the GEMMA, with the switch sticking out the side. Plug in the battery and glue the switch in place.
