Metals

We use only the Finest Metals for our chainmail at Silver Tiger Art. I myself am Very metal sensitive to nickel and lesser metals, and I feel it is Very Important to bring the best and most wearable materials to our work. What is the point of buying a piece and having it rust, tarnish, rub off on your skin or clothes or give you a rash?

This is why Our Stainless steel is 304 grade with a bright shiny finish that will Never Dull. It is spring tempered, full hard, so it won't need any repairs with normal wear.  Stainless may not sound as glamorous as the precious metals, however, it lasts virtually forever, looks great, and is very strong. 

  This being said, Any materials may be used in the construction of your special piece. We have access to rings of almost any size in everything from Mild Steel or Galvanized for Armour, to Colorful Anodized Aluminum for fantasy wear, dice bags jewelry and trim, Titanium, brass, copper, or even Sterling Silver, Gold, or Gold Fill for special jewelry. Other metals (such as phos-bronze, nickel silver etc.) available upon special request

Image038.jpg (65769 bytes) Three types of silver-Clockwise from top Left:

Stainless Steel, Bright Aluminum, Clear Anodized Aluminum.

Stainless is my favorite, with a bright shiny finish, and no bad smell like galvanized or staining. It can be a bit heavy in larger pieces.

Bright Aluminum is gorgeous and lightweight, making it Great for earrings and accessories, but may leave black or gray smudges if worn next to your skin. This smudging is easily washable, and some find it worthwhile to save on the weight.

Clear Anodized Aluminum has a whitish look, but is sealed, giving you the light weight, without the smudging.
