These handmade Burgundy 18, 20 or 22 gauge jump rings are perfect for chainmaille artisans and all jewelry artisans who are looking for something better than what is available commercially! They are measured ID (inside diameter).
These rings are a wonderful weight because the base metal is copper. First the Burgundy Color is applied. Then they have a clear coating baked on to prevent tarnishing and increase durability! They are handmade by me to my exacting specifications for my personal use and you will love how my attention to detail will make your creations stand out! I recommend them for light to medium duty creations.

They are made from non-tarnishing Burgundy Wire. They are wound on a mandrel and saw cut with 0.008" rotary slitting saw blade-this means that only a very small amount of the ring is removed which gives you a nice round ring with a very smooth parallel cut and no burrs.
Next they are tumble washed with detergent and hot water and dried at low temperature; each are hand inspected. Special tools are not required to work with these! I damage 1% on average when making chainmaille.
I love making chainmaile, but was unable to purchase jump rings that met my standards, so I invested in the equipment and started making them myself. Over 40 years engineering experience paid off! I love them! The weight is substantial and my customers love the feel when they pick up my products.
