MidwestMaille's Shop Announcement

Midwest Maille - Specializing in Argentium Sterling Silver and Non Tarnish Silver Plate Chain Maille Kits and hand coiled, saw cut, Argentium Sterling Silver , Non Tarnish Silver Plate and Colored jump rings for your chain maille and jewelry creations.

Argentium® 930 sterling silver is highly tarnish-resistant. Jewelry-makers and customers alike appreciate the value and convenience of beautifully sparkling jewelry that requires no polishing. An occasional rinse with a mild soap and water is all that is needed.

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO view the additional picture, show with each jump ring listing, that will show you the difference between Argentium and traditional sterling silver. The Argentium side is still bright and shiny while the traditional sterling side is tarnishing. Argentium® 930 Sterling Silver is a little more expensive than traditional sterling silver ... but in my opinion, well worth it!

All jump rings are custom cut to order and are available in 16g, 18g and 20g Argentium® sterling silver, non tarnish silver plate and non tarnish colored jump rings.
If you need a size that I do not have listed, please convo me for a quote on the size/gauge jump rings you would like.

Not sure what sizes or quantities of jump rings you need to order? Contact me and I will be happy to help. Need a size or quantity I do not have listed? Just contact me, it's that easy!

Many of my chain maille kits include our hand coiled, precision cut and polished Argentium® sterling silver jump rings and illustrated step-by-step instructions. Chain maille kits and tutorials are non refundable purchases. Clasps and any other findings are not included in kits unless otherwise noted.

As of April 2011, many of my chain maille kits will now be available with precision cut and polished Argentium® sterling silver jump rings AND Non tarnish silver plated jump rings, along with my step-by-step color instructions. Refill kits are also available upon request.

Although Midwest Maille will continue to specialize in chain maille kits with Argentium® sterling silver, I also want to be able to offer my customers a less expensive alternative, chain maille kits with non tarnish permanent silver plated jump rings.

After doing extensive testing on silver plated wire from several different companies, I finally found a quality non tarnish silver plated wire.

The wire that I use to make my non tarnish permanent silver plated and colored jump rings is made by using 99% pure copper wire that is plated with 99% fine silver ... then a clear coat is added to prevent tarnishing. When your jump rings are closed, the copper core is hidden inside.

Please take the time to read through my shop policies before purchase, and feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
