Anodized Aluminum are created in a process that uses dye, heat, electricity. The coating in shiney and bright, and is the most cost effective way to add colour to your chainmail designs. There can be colour differences between batches that are unavoidable, so we recommend buying more rings than you may need for one project, because the same colour in the next batch may not be the same. The easiest way to damage the colour coating is scratching it with steel so we recommend using pliers with NO teeth, and you can even use Tool Magic to help protect them!
The NEW AA Rings are from our new anodizing Partner - The rings are coloured AFTER they are cut - so the cut marks are coloured, not silver.
There are touch marks on all the rings in this size. This means there are little tiny white specs on some rings, as the rings touch each other in the anodizing process.
12 gauge 1" ID
These are made with 2.4mm Wire. There is quite a bit of spring back to this thickness of wire -- so the rings will be slightly bigger than the actual mandrel they are wound on.
Please use drop down menu on right hand side to select larger bags of rings. There is a price break for buying larger amounts.
