Jump rings are elevated to a new level at the Blue Buddha Boutique. Blue Buddha’s jump rings come in a variety of metals, colors, diameters and wire gauges. You can go classic metal in sterling, copper, brass and steel or punch it up a bit with color mixes such as the Persian Rug and Earth Mixes.
Now maybe you’re inspired to design with jump rings. Try chain maille. Blue Buddha Boutique offers well-written, easy to learn free tutorials that enticed me to try my hand at mail.

I really want to do chain maille, but I’m already trying several new things! Prioritizing is hard when you “want.all.shinys.NOW” 🙂
So, I’ve bookmarked the site. Thanks for posting about it – getting a kit with all the right components and instructions is exactly what I’ll need!

I really like Blue Buddha products. I like that they are the best US seller of jump rings. I do use the Ring Lord as well, depending on my needs and my budget, but the color consistency is much better with Blue Buddha. Welcome to the world of chain maille. I found it addicting!!!

These are really cool! Seeing all the different colors makes me feel like I am looking at a gaint crayon box! They would also be great for connecting pendents when you don’t want silver or gold to take away from the piece. Definately a site to bookmark!
