Many people expressed interest in square and diamond rings in other metals, so we brought in a small amount of red brass to try out. The good news is that we got it in, made some rings and got pictures for you. The bad news they are all gone already. Nearly 2lbs of rings.
18g square jump rings
18g Diamond jump rings
This red brass is much richer than any other we have worked with. We have more on the way and hope to have rings listed by next week. We will be starting with 18g rings. All will be sized to match with our copper and silver so you can mix metals if you like.
We have also just listed sterling silver diamond rings in 18g, sized for JPL. If you have never worked with ‘Diamond’ rings before, you owe it to yourself. The shine on them is like nothing else.
18g silver diamond jump rings
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!
It’s been too long since we have posted here, and we apologize for that, we won’t let it go this long again. We do have some news to share though!
First, we would like to thank all of our customers and fellow chainmaillers for a wonderful 2008. Without you, we wouldn’t get to do what we love.
We have updated our event calender with our scheuled classes for January. By request, we have added a new weave to our list of classes. Half Persian 4-1. This is a wonderful “flat” weave that makes great rings, bracelets and necklaces. We also use it for wallet chains. This leads us to our newest offerings……
Square copper jump rings
We have just listed several sizes of square wire rings in our new “specialty” ring section. Right now it is mostly copper rings, with a couple in silver. We have them sized for many different patterns, and are happy to make other sizes if you have something in mind. We have tested every size in every pattern we have listed and are happy with how they interact. In fact, we have even done a square dragonscale that we will release shortly.
We have also developed a ‘Diamond’ jump ring. As of this writing they are only available in copper, sized for JPL, but there are more in the works. These can also be found in our ‘Speciality’ ring section.
We have many shows planned this year, and will have those up on our schedule as soon as they are confirmed with the promoters.
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.
