►The Material This listing is for all of my remaining stock of 14ga 5/16" shiny anodized aluminum jump rings from TRL. They're very light weight and easy to work with. These are great for complete beginners but they're also great for advanced maillers. Anodized aluminum does not tarnish or patina and the colors are strong, although they can be scratched by pliers if you're not careful.
►The Kit(s) "Everything" come with 1,275 rings for $30.09 ($2.36 per 100 rings) 50 Pink 45 Red 80 Orange 50 Yellow 90 Mint 45 Green 65 Sea Foam 35 Sky 30 Blue 55 Lavender 35 Purple 30 Black 105 Black Ice 110 Bright Silver 85 Gold 95 Champagne 155 Bronze 115 Frost*
* "Frost" is matte, not shiny like the others, but it IS saw cut.

►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.
Love these. Have several orders for jump ring bracelets and these are perfect. Great seller!
