As most already know, we have put in many size of copper square jump rings in our store. These have proven to be very popular. There have been many requests for other sizes, and we are working on those. 16g copper should be here by the end of the week. Tell us what you want to make with it, we will work on sizes for you.
We are also working on stainless steel and Silver sizes. If that wasn’t enough, we have secured a small amount of square red brass in both 18 and 20g.
That’s right. Red brass square wire. We have not seen this anywhere else, so we are very excited to be able to offer it to you here. Once we have it here we will be converting our copper sizes into red brass. They should be completly compatible, so if you want to mix metals, go for it.
Once we have it cut, we will post some pictures for you, so stay tuned!
We now have 16 and 18g (SWG) stainless steel square wire in stock, as well as 18 and 20g (AWG) Half hard copper square in stock. We will be making and listing rings over the next few days. If you have a specific request, let us know and we will put it at the front of the list.
We have also made a few new sizes in sterling square and will have those sizes listed in the next day or two.
We are working on getting both bronze and red brass in square. Our hope is to have them in stock by the new year.
We are very excited to announce that C&T Designs jump rings can now be found at Aussie Maille. Aussie Maille is an Australian business run by one of the nicest people I have had the pleasure to deal with and they specialize in chainmaille jump rings. A perfect fit for us!
We have just sent them their first package which included niobium and stainless steel jump rings. Stay tuned to their website to see thier new products.
We are very happy to announce our new product line, Double Vision. Products in the Double Vision line will
Double Vision earrings
be Argentium silver based with either niobium or gold mixed in. We chose these metals because we think they look stunning together, and with the Argentium silver, you won’t have to worry about tarnishing for a very long time.
This product line will only be available from us either through our store or our Etsy shop. They will not be available in any retail location that carries our product.
We have already added Double Vision earrings and a necklace to our online shop, and will be adding more over the next few weeks.

We received our wire shipment today and have been feverishly making rings. All are marked back in stock and are ready to be shipped. For those that ordered while they were out, will be shipping orders tomorrow. You will receive your shipping confirmation once your order has been packed.
We have new sized rings planned, as well as more color options for our current ring sizes. All of these should be added to the store next week.
As you may or may not know, there are two different wire gauge systems. Yeah, it can be very confusing, not to mention frustrating if you didn’t know that before you ordered wire/rings. Up until now just about any place you bought 18g niobium wire from, would be selling you 18g SWG wire. This poses problems if you like to mix metals such as silver and niobium, especially on weaves that are very size specific.
Well, no longer do you have to worry about that. We now carry both 18g AWG (.040″) and 18g SWG (.045″) niobium. Over the course of the next week we will be working on matching sizes for the more popular weaves. As we get the sizes figured out and cut, we will add them to the store. If you have a particular size you need and just can’t wait, drop us a line and we would be happy to help you out.
We are happy to announce we now have argentium silver in stock. We have added 2 sizes of argentium silver jump rings to our site as well as our etsy store. We will be adding a few more sizes over the next few days.
What is argentium silver you ask?
From wikipedia, Argentium Sterling Silver is a modern sterling silver alloy which modifies the traditional sterling silver alloy (92.5% silver + 7.5% copper) by replacing some of the copper with the metalloid germanium. This makes it very resistant to both firescale and tarnishing.
Our current niobium wire is 18g SWG. This means it’s about .045″ in diameter. No big deal in some cases, but if your like us and like to mix metals it can pose a problem. Well, we have solved that problem! In a few weeks we will have 18g AWG (.040″) in stock. This will mix perfectly with our sterling silver for a splash of color. Once the wire arrives will make a few different ring sizes and put them up in the shop. If you want a specific size made, let us know and we will put you on a priority list. Pricing will run $22-$25 oz, and of course we can anodize it. (Yes, even our popular “rainbow” pattern)
And remember, It’s in the Maille!
