These tins are the backbone of my ring organization system.
I hunted for a while to find the right boxes-inside-a-bigger-box solution for carrying jump rings. Dot Boxes won because you don’t have to fill the case for the storage boxes to be stable! Those little dented in “dots” lock everything in place when you close the lid.
Some of my students use these for long term storage. I use them, instead, to hold all the various ring sizes/colors/components for my current portable project.
I carry three sizes of complete sets if you’d like a quick-and-easy storage solution. You can also buy empty cases in those same three sizes to fill with any combination of individual boxes that works for your project needs.
Shopping for pliers? I highly recommend that you read my blog post on what to look for. If you can get the right pliers for your hands and for the ring sizes that you use, it will make a world of difference in your enjoyment (and skill!) when you’re making chainmail.
