These custom handmade BRASS 16 gauge 6.2mm X 2.6mm ID(inside diameter) OVAL 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 raw brass. They are handmade by me to my exacting specifications for my personal use and you will love how easy they are to close and how nearly seamless they appear!
16 gauge = 1.29mm thick
Rich Low Brass - Golden Tone
Yellow Brass - Yellow Tone with a hint of green
Oval links are stronger than round links because the joint, on the side, is the least stressed point of these jump rings.
They are made from 16 gauge YELLOW or RICH LOW Brass Wire. They are wound on a custom 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 steel shot, washed with detergent and hot water and dried at low temperature; each are hand inspected.
