Description

Anodized Aluminum Mixes

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 "jump ring stew”. 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. If you need a set amount of each color we suggest you purchase the individual colors instead of a mix.
 

Anodized Aluminum Jump Rings - Product Description

Our Anodized Aluminum Jump rings are anodized in house at our sister company, Premier Anodizing & Metal Finishing. This assures that we will never be out of stock of a color and that we have control over our quality.  However, the colors can change slightly from batch to batch. We use a spectrometer to get the closest color matches possible but there still can be some differences, this is normal in the anodizing process. Therefore, you should order enough jump rings to finish your project all at the same time.

Our jump rings are anodized before they are cut so the ends are raw aluminum however with the coating thickness we use and with the thin blades we cut our jump rings with, if you close the rings properly the seam can not be seen.

Jump Ring Weight - Anodized Aluminum Jump rings are lighter weight than Enameled Copper Jump rings. The coating is fairly hard but it can be scratched with steel.

FDA Approved - The anodizing process we use is FDA approved for cookware. Premier Anodizing uses only organic dyes and is rated non-hazardous.

Anodized Aluminum Jump Rings - 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.), 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.

    Great colors (except for orange)

    Aug 16th 2018

    Good quality jump rings. Colors true to photo. Unfortunately, those colors aren't quite what I was looking for-- I love rainbows, and was hoping that the 'Prism' mix would be good for that. The colors included in this mix are red, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, and darker yellow. No proper orange.

    Quality

    The Quality of the jump rings are great very beautiful colors and clean with no burrs and I love the way they are packaged the price is awesome for what you get. Also I had a few miss haps with my pliers and to my surprise it did not damage the coloring on the rings I was thrilled for that.

    Nice Rings! Some size consistency issues

    Feb 3rd 2017

    Overall, the rings are good to work with, cut nicely and neatly, and very good color saturation and durability. I did notice that the pink color has a slight higher gauge (thinner wire) than the dark blue and purple. Only way I was able to notice this was a micro byzantine weave and the gaps in the connectors.

    Brilliant and Perfect

    Dec 23rd 2016

    After receiving these beauties (amazingly fast, I might add), I was just shocked at how vibrant they were. The quality was outstanding and they weave together seamlessly (see what I did there?LOL)
    Truly, this is a beautiful set. I am enjoying crafting and creating and will DEFINITELY be buying more kits in the future!
