These 18g 5mm ID custom handmade SQUARE WIRE 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 the base metal is copper. The color is applied and then they have a clear coating baked on to prevent tarnishing! They are handmade by us to our exacting specifications for our personal use-and we are now making them for sale!
They are made from Non-tarnishing Square 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 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.
