These 16 gauge 8.5mm ID (inside diameter) made-to-order Twisted Square Wire jump rings are a wonderful weight because their are made from solid metal - either Solid Raw Copper or Rich Low Brass. They are handmade by me to my exacting specifications for my personal use-and I now make them for sale! The quality is far better than what is available commercially and I guarantee my work!
Solid Raw Copper
Rich Low Brass
They are made from 18 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.
