►The Material These jump rings are bright aluminum and are very light weight and easy to work with. These are great for complete beginners but they're still very useful for advanced maillers. Bright aluminum does not tarnish or patina but it is dirtier compared to its anodized cousins and can rub off grey on the skin when being handled or worked with.
►The Kit(s) This listing is for a bag of saw cut, bright aluminum jump rings in multiples of 100 rings. If you'd like larger or custom quantities send me a message. I'd be happy to help! They are priced at $0.55 per 100 rings.
►The Weaves • Barrel • Byzantine • European 4-in-1 • Roundmaille • Vipera Berus •Any weave that uses rings with an AR of about 3.5. Check out the library at www.mailleartisans.org for more weaves. •See the 2nd picture for example pieces that use the same AR.
►The Technicals Material: Bright Aluminum (Saw Cut) Wire: 18 gauge (SWG) (16 gauge (AWG) or 0.048" or 1.2mm) Inner Diameter: 0.165" (4.19mm) Outer Diameter: 0.261" (6.59mm) AR (Aspect Ratio): 3.4
►The Fine Print • "Saw cut" rings have a smoother cut than "machine cut". See the last picture for an example of both. • You will need two pairs of pliers in order to open and close jump rings.
