As with all our jump rings our stainless steel rings are saw cut.  This leaves you with a seamless closure and doesn't catch on other items as you wear it....a must if you are making chain maille jewellery.

Our Annealed Stainless steel is a much easier to work with than our other stainless steel jump rings.  Although easier to move, it still is the same strong jump ring.   It makes stunning chain maille jewellery (especially for men) and won't rust or tarnish...it loves being worn and will get shinier as you wear it.

How to Use this Table:

Ring ID is the size of the mandrel that was used to make the ring.

Actual Ring ID is the measured Internal Diameter of a closed jump ring (this takes springback and kerf into consideration).  

Actual AR is the Aspect Ratio that was calculated using the Actual Ring ID.

Ring Count is the approximate number of rings in the standard bag size.

 

To help you with some ideas of weaves you can create we have listed some here that will work with this jump ring size.
