The task of a jump ring is a very important one. That's because a jump ring is the preeminent 'bread & butter' jewelry component. How so?
1. Jump rings are a staple...literally! They attach one jewelry finding to another. A charm to a charm bracelet. A drop to an earring. A bead to another bead.
2. They love hanging out in big numbers. With just a couple pairs of pliers and a couple hundred jump rings, you can make an intricately woven, fluid chain mail bracelet or necklace that behaves like luxurious textiles—textiles with a kick! (Make sure you check out our Maillesmith™ chain mail kits.)
3. With so many SHAPES, SIZES, GAUGES and METALS available, jump rings can make quiet, subtle connections between components...or they can leap from one to the next and become interesting focal points in your designs!
Yep, these handy staples stay connected and keep it all together. So whether you need oval jump rings, solder-filled round rings, niobium jump rings, stainless steel split rings or a big jump ring assortment, Rio Grande will keep you stocked up!
