These 16gauge 7.0mm ID(inside diameter) made-to-order Twisted Square Copper or Brass jump rings are perfect for chainmaille artisans and all jewelry artisans who are looking for something better than what is available commercially!
These rings are a wonderful weight because they are SOLID COPPER or SOLID BRASS. They are handmade by me to my exacting specifications.
Solid Copper Rings
Solid Brass Rings
They are made from 16 gauge square wire. First I twist the wire and then it is 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 shot and then 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 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.
