Pictures have now been split into several pages since one page for pictures was getting ridiculous.
Here's a new pic of all the different styles of rings I offer:

So far I have experience using:
aluminium - bright and anodized
copper - plain and coated (glow in the dark too!)
gold - plated and filled
niobium - anodized
rubber - epdm (ethylene propylene diene monomer)
silicone - glow-in-the-dark
silver - plated, sterling, and fine
steel - 304 (18/8), 316 (surgical stainless), 316L, 403, galvanized, memory wire

Notes on materials:
- Brass / Bronze / Copper - inexpensive permanently coloured metal, weaker than steel and if left against the skin it will turn skin green; I use it in designs where skin contact is minimal to non-existent
- Bright Aluminium - easy to work and stays shiny throughout the years, though has a black rub-off on skin; I use it in designs where skin contact is minimal to non-existent and also as the links for teaching the students in my classes building techniques without having to fight the twice as hard properties of steel
- Galvanized Steel - about ten times less expensive than Stainless Steel, galvanized steel electric fence wire is the first material I used. Since oxidation causes it to tarnish and disintegrate over time I do not use it anymore; it has become a mark of my first works.
- Stainless Steel - good ol' stainless steel doesn't rust or tarnish, if it gets dirty you can just wear it while you take a shower, though it has nickel which may cause an irritation in some people

I also do repairs on other's pieces of maile.
