  • These 18SWG rings are made with 0.045" or 1.2MM wire
  • They are made of Aluminum Alloy 5356, which contains 5% Magnesium and makes for a much brighter finish than regular aluminum and doesn't oxidize(little to no blackness ruboff vs regular Aluminum). 
  • Aluminum is easy to work with, is light, and still quite strong! If you have any questions feel free to contact us.

Below is a guide for these 18 SWG rings. Many more weaves can be made, these are just suggestions!

Generally the lower the AR number the "tighter" the weave will be.  The higher it is, the "looser" it becomes.  If you are a beginner, we'd recommend the higher AR's as they can be easier to work with.  Almost all single-size weaves can be made with higher than recommended AR's.

Excellent weave tutorials can be found at: http://www.mailleartisans.org/
