These rings are a wonderful weight because the base metal is copper wire made from Artistic Wire or Parawire. First they are colored. Then they have a clear coating baked on to prevent tarnishing! They are handmade by me to my exacting specifications for my personal use-and I am now making them for sale!
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 tumble washed with detergent and hot water and dried at low temperature; each ring is hand inspected. Special tools are not required to work with these! I damage 1% on average when weaving with these rings.
I love making chainmaille, 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.
