They are made from 430 grade 100% Nickel Free Stainless Steel 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.
Next they are tumbled with special media to create this MATTE FINISH, washed with detergent and hot water and dried at low temperature; each are hand inspected. These jump rings will be slightly magnetic. Contact us if you would like us to use a different grade that is not magnetic.

We love making chainmaille, but were unable to purchase jump rings that met our standards, so we invested in the equipment and started making them ourselves and we love them! The weight is substantial and our customers love the feel when they pick up the products.
We can make these in most ANY size that you need.
