Rich Low Brass
They are made from 18 gauge wire that is Made in the USA. 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.
These have been tumbled to be half hard which is our personal preference for most of our jewelry creations.
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!
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.
Materials: no lead, made in the USA, rich low brass, yellow brass, bronze, copper.
