Wound, cut and tumbled by Aussie Maille.  We use a very small blade (0.008" thick) to ensure that we remove as little material as possible giving you the best ring that we can.

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.


Please note:  if there is a ring size you need that you don't see listed, please contact us to arrange for a custom listing.

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