♥These are the best commercially made jump rings we have found. Here is why we like them:
The base metal is brass so they have a nice weight and feel AND they are strong.
They do not contain nickel or lead and we spot check them to make sure. They have always tested 100%.
The Silver Plate and Gold Plate have a lightweight coating that will keep them bright and shiny in their bags for years.
Price! These are a great value.
♥So, what is the downside?
Gauge and diameter may vary from batch to batch and occasionally ring to ring.
These are machine made, so there will be a small notch at the joint and the joint is not parallel. A large blade is used to cut them which results in a large KURF. what's that? Think of that pile of saw dust under a table saw. Same thing happens when jump rings are cut. The kurf is the portion of the jump ring that is removed/lost and turned into metal dust. This can change the shape of the ring and contribute to a joint that will not close 100%.
Sizes and finishes are limited.
♥Make the Byzantine Bracelet pictured with these jump rings. It takes 30 jump rings to make each inch of this classic chainmaille weave!
