Our mixes start with roughly an even mixture of the colors in a large batch. Therefore, after packaging each bag will have different amounts of each color. These mixes are designed to be a mix and to give you a variety of color to work with or to create a unique piece of "jumpring stew". If you need a set amount of each color we suggest you purchase the individual colors instead of a mix. Also, occasionally we will throw a few limited quantity colors into a mix to enhance the mix. They are a surprise treat and not to be expected every time or to be found with our regular rings.
Enameled copper provides some of the brightest and most colorful rings you will find. They are made by coating the wire with a durable plastic enamel that should not peel or flake. All rings are tumble polished for a bright shiny beautiful jump ring.
Silvered enameled copper is made by plating the copper wire with a layer of pure silver before enameling, which creates a brilliant shine. Unlike niobium and titanium, copper rings must be colored before they are cut. This leaves the original copper wire visible at the cut. However, these are saw-cut rings, so if you close them well, no copper should be visible.
As with all colored rings, some fading will occur over time, but we find that can add a nice dimension to your work. The actual colors may differ slightly from batch to batch, as each spool of wire can be slightly different. Generally speaking, the color in enameled copper is much more reliable than any of the anodized metals.
Certain colors of wire have more layers added on to them than others, this makes for the slightest hair of thickness added to certain colors. If you have a super sensitive weave, again please contact us first before ordering. Red and green are both known to be "fat" colors of enameled copper.
