These custom handmade Raw Bronze 16 gauge 8mm ID(Inside Diameter) jump rings are perfect for chainmaille artisans and all jewelry artisans who are looking for something better!
These rings have a great weight and will develop a wonderful patina as they are made from raw, uncoated bronze wire! They are handmade by me to my exacting specifications.
16 gauge = 1.29mm
8mm ID = 10.5mm OD
They are made from 16 gauge round Raw Bronze Wire. 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.
Next they are tumbled with steel shoot, 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 have other raw bronze rings and findings available. Contact me if you don't find what you need. Have a question? Need a different material, size or quantity? Let me know.
Check my joints! The picture shows why YOU will be able to close this ring so that it appears NEARLY SEAMLESS!
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.
