Enameled Copper - Product Description
Enameled copper provides some of the brightest and most colorful jump rings you will find. They are made by coating the wire with an enamel that makes for shiny rings that are a pleasure to work with and wear.

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. 

Our mix colors are roughly an even mixture of the colors and 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 - Specifications
Our jump rings follow the American Wire Gauge (AWG), also known as Brown and Sharpe (B&S). All sizes listed are inside diameter (I.D.), measured in millimeters which corresponds to the size of the mandrel onto which the wire is wound. Use these I.D.'s as a guide, not an absolute, as springback can occur.

Wire diameter may vary up to 0.03mm (0.0012”) larger or smaller than the listed size.

Over the last few months you may have noticed that some of our enameled copper rings have been out of stock (flag blue!). Since we have been supplying enameled copper we have always looked to provide our customers with top quality rings. Unfortunately within the last few years our supplier has made changes to the way that they manufacture the wire. We have been unable to get the same quality we once did and regret to inform that some rings will come with slight variances depending on the batch.

We suggest to always purchase as much of a color as you need for a complete project. From time to time we have received wire that tends to "peel". If one in 20 rings seems like it might peel, we will manufacture the rings, and this will be considered a normal occurrence with our enameled copper rings. Anything more than that, and we will not offer it to the public.

We must inform you that we can't accept returns based on rings that peel, or off color enameled copper rings. These slight defects are not ideal, but they are becoming a regular occurrence in order to still provide our customers with the enameled copper options. Quality is always our first concern and if we feel that there is a color that is not performing to our standards we may have to discontinue it. We apologize and regret that this is the case. Please contact us if you have questions about a specific color or size.

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. 

**Important Notice: Orders with more than 2 packs of an item may be bulk packaged at WGM's discretion. However, colors and sizes will not be mixed in a bag.

    The Enamel Copper Jump Rings are my favorite to work with. I initially bought the Steel Jump Rings but when I got them they were like a gun metal color and being new to Chainmaille and Jump Rings they weren’t what I expected. They made it so easy for me to return them and get these and you expect anything better than that!

    I like EC links very much! The color does not scrape off. They are very sturdy and have a nice weight to them.

    I am always so happy with the quality of color on these rings. I just wish they were sold in bigger packages! 5 ounce bags would be perfect.
