These rubber rings were developed and tested by Blue Buddha Boutique. When B3 closed their doors in 2016, Spiderchain adopted their line of rubber rings.
These closed, non-latex rubber rings help you finish many traditional chainmaille weaves faster, resulting in flexible and stretchy pieces. You can also fold and manipulate the rubber O-rings to create spectacular patterns that you can’t achieve with metal alone. Make your jewelry stand out by using Spiderchain’s exclusive rubber rings!
Spiderchain rubber jump rings are silicon-based, making them shiny, soft and flexible. The color of these rings stays vibrant over time; jewelry created with these rings can be cleaned and tumbled just like metal pieces.

Rubber rings let you “bend” (haha!) the rules of chainmail a bit. They can reach around and through weaves in ways that rigid metal can’t. Your weaving sequence will be a bit different with these rubber rings, as they’re all “pre-closed.” Some weaves are especially well suited to working with pre-closed rings (Half Persian!) but others? (Dragonscale) Not so much… And remember – one huge advantage of rubber rings is close-fitting jewelry that can be stretched on – no clasp required!
