Bronze is a copper colored metal that is an alloy of copper and tin.
It tarnishes and will turn the color of a bronze sculpture or old penny over time. It has slightly more corrosion resistance than brass. Bronze can be cleaned with any commercially available brass cleaner - like Brasso.
All of our bronze is 1/2 hard temper and is strong enough for quality chainmail. Our alloy of choice is C510 which is a phosphor bronze.
We offer a taylored selection of sizes for bronze coils. The minimum amount you can buy is listed on the lower right of each wire guage product box below. If you need a smaller amount of a ring or you need a different size please browse our wide selection of rings.

Making vs Buying rings - Bottom line is we have a business making rings in large amounts at great prices. The vast majority of the time it doesn't pay to make your own rings - and you will get better cuts buying pre-made.
