These custom handmade Vintage Bronze 16 gauge 8.0mm 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. They have a warm vintage bronze color and have a clear coating baked on to prevent tarnishing and increase durability! They are handmade by me to my exacting specifications for my personal use-and I am now making them for sale!

They are made from 16 gauge Non-tarnishing Vintage Bronze Parawire Wire. They are wound on a 8.0mm 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! I damage 1% on average.

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.

I offer quantity discounts and quick turn-around!

PREFER them already closed? Convo me! I charge 50% more for this service and will make a custom listing for you for the difference.

PREFER a slightly different size? Great! Same price for 16 Gauge rings in ID sizes from 4.5mm-8.0mm. Let me know exactly what size in the notes to seller in the check out process. I will convo you as to the exact turnaround time which is usually less than 2 days.

PREFER a different color? GREAT! Here is what I have in stock in 16 gauge: Non-tarnishing Silver Plate, Black, Raw Copper, Non-tarnishing Copper, Amber, Non-tarnishing Gold, Red, Vintage Bronze, Aqua, Brown, Green, Raw Brass, Non-tarnishing Brass

Let me know what color you would like in the notes to seller in the check out process. I will convo you right away as to the exact turnaround time which is usually less than 2 days.
