Product Description

My jump rings are made completely by me - hand coiled wire on hardened steel mandrels, then precision cut for perfectly flush cut rings. Tumbled with stainless steel shot to clean, harden and bring them to a beautiful shine makes them perfect for making chainmaille or to use however you like in your own handmade jewelry.

Inner diameter is the diameter of the mandrel, or steel rod that I coil the wire onto before cutting into rings. Some springback will occur, making the inner diameter of the ring slightly larger than the mandrel diameter. Inner and outer diameter may be +/- .2mm from these calculations.

*The "actual" measurements on the large diameter sizes above were made after closing the ring with my pliers, tight and flush without any gaps. The bigger the diameter of the ring, the more the coil of wire can "spring back" from the mandrel which it's coiled on, causing the ring, and thus the ID and OD to be larger than the mandrel size. Please note that I still label the rings by the size of the mandrel they were coiled on (or it would be too confusing!)

Please note that ring counts are approximate. I provide them here to help you get an idea of how many rings you are ordering, but do allow for some variance. While the number of rings you receive may vary from the above chart, you will ALWAYS receive the WEIGHT you ordered.

  8. Best Jump Rings Ever 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Dec 2014

    I really like these jump rings--they are meticulously saw-cut, and Amy obviousy tumbled/polished them before she sent them out. I used them to make a Jens Pind bracelet, which looks even better because I was able to close the jump rings so that the edges were barely visible. This made the bracelet look even better.
    Thank you Amy! Both for the rings and for a fabulous tutorial. If I have my druthers, I'll be getting all of my sterling silver jump rings from you.

  10. Best all around jump ring 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Oct 2012

    I love this size and use tons of them- I buy the 3.5mm and use them for all sizes of charms from 1/2" to 1". The 16g is the perfect thickness in my opinion- tight enough to hold without soldering and looks great!
