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!
This size of AA Ring is from our new anodizing Partner - The rings are coloured AFTER they are cut - so the cut marks are coloured, not silver.
18 gauge 1/8" ID
This size is great for clasping bracelets -- it's too tight for Jen's Pind. Used in our Celtic Starz Pattern. This works great for Japanese with 16g rings as the large rings (any Size)
Clear is a silvery colour -- its not super shiny, nor is it frosty or Matte -- it's the process done over our clean shiny BA - but will not oxide.
Please use drop down menu on right hand side to select larger bags of rings. There is a price break for buying larger amounts.
Please note the Gold in this colour was a problem for the anodizer -- it doesn't quite match the other gold in the other sizes as it should. We are doing out very best to sort this batch by hand... there will be a mistint selection in this colour available soon.( Like the pink in 5/32"!) Thanks!
