Did you know that 18 gauge SQUARE wire has 30% more volume than 18 gauge round wire?
They are made from SQUARE Enameled Coated Copper Wire. First 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 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 damage 1% on average.
We love making chainmaile, but were unable to purchase jump rings that met our standards, so we invested in the equipment and started making them ourselfs. Over 40 years engineering experience paid off! We love them! The weight is substantial and our customers love the feel when they pick up our products.
