All of my pieces are made primarily with Galvanized Steel of varying gauges.  I use colored Bright Aluminum rings as accents.  Currently my Galvanized Steel rings are hand coiled and cut, while the Aluminum rings are machine coiled/cut and purchased in bulk.

Galvanized Steel is very hard and coated in Zinc to prevent rusting.  Some of my pieces are dipped in 'Gun Blueing' which gives them a beautiful deep gray Gun Metal color.  Aluminum is a softer metal, which also means it's lighter in weight and will not rust, ever!

 As these are worn the steel gets a warmer color, and your natural skin oils give your piece a nice shine.  Clean them up with a small amount of dish soap and water and dry with a soft cloth.
