|New Aluminum Jewelry Chains at OhioBeads.com!
We are pleased to introduce aluminum (aluminium) jewelry chains.
Aluminum metal is easily machined, cast, drawn or extruded. It is lightweight, non-magnetic and corrosion-resistant. This metal's appearance ranges from silvery to dull gray, depending on the surface roughness.
Colored aluminum chains are anodized, which creates a layer generally much stronger and more adherent than most types of paint and metal plating. The anodized aluminum chains show microzones from the heat treatment that mean the color is not 100 percent uniform, but has color variations within the predominant color.
Aluminum jewelry chains are not soldered, which creates the need to experiment with wire wraps that will remain firmly attached to open chain links.
One primary benefit of aluminum chain is that its price is less expensive than comparable brass chain.>15
