Using Jewelry Tool Kits for Assembly and Repair
Jewelry tool kits are a handy thing to keep around. They are usually small enough to stick in your purse or a drawer, and can be used to fix all kinds of problems with many types of jewelry.
Probably one of the most common uses for jewelry tool kits is replacing pins in the sides of eyeglasses. A jewelry tool kit will have a small screwdriver, several pins, and screws to replace a lost or broken pin. This is much cheaper than buying new frames.
It’s not uncommon for a bracelet clasp to come loose or break. This is because our bracelets come in to contact with lots of things throughout the day. Most jewelry repair tool kits will have extra clasps and jump rings. You can easily attach these to your bracelet with a small pair of needle-nose pliers.
A broken chain may need to go to a jeweler for repair. A jewelry repair kit can give you a temporary fix until you have a chance to do this. Using small needle nose pliers and the jump rings, you can string a chain back together so it won’t get lost. Most repair kits will also have a small pick tool to help untangle a chain that has been badly tangled.
