   Silver filled jump rings are now available in 18 and 16 gauge. You can click here to view the new silver filled jump rings page. The silver filled jump rings are 1/10 or 10% sterling silver by weight. I've been working with the silver filled, and highly recommend this material as a great alternative to the higher cost of sterling silver. Properly closed silver filled jump rings will not show the brass core underneath. Silver filled bracelet and necklace kits should start to become available starting this weekend. More color options in anodized niobium have also been added. You can always ask for a custom blend of anodized niobium at check out.

   Silver filled chain maille bracelet kits are now available. Silver filled bracelet kits are an excellent alternative to kits made in sterling silver. There is no difference in appearance between sterling and silver filled. Take advantage of this great alternative by providing your customers with the same look and feel as sterling, but at a fraction of the cost. Learning this ancient art has never been this affordable. With the craft season coming soon you'll want to provide great jewelry at an excellent price. Sell more jewelry to your customers than every before. What are you waiting for?

    I am now stocking dead soft round wire suitable for adding bead embellishments to your jewelry projects in copper and bronze. Available in 20, 18, and 16 gauge round wire.

    All "Imperial" size jump rings are now also listed with a letter & number system underneath the imperial size. In parenthesis is the metric equivalent. The number stands for the gauge of wire and the letter now designates the Imperial size mandrel on which the wire was wound on. Example: 18-D represents an 18ga 1/8" jump ring, and a 16-H jump ring represents 16ga 3/16". This should make it easier to match sizes listed on tutorials you may have or find in a magazine.
The new system should make things easier for some to remember the sizes by letters than having to remember an imperial size such as 21/64".
