Are you looking to make a chain mail purse?

If so I get rings from amazon, just look chain mail links. I believe they're aluminum and they just bend in place so not the most secure, but if its not something that you're going to beat on they work fine.

for something a little sturdier you can use tiny key rings (split rings) but they're a pain to work with

Jarred I'm looking to make a pouch that uses a large ring at the top for an opening. You lift the ring and the top of the pouch opens. When you let go of the ring gravity  closes it. There are examples on "Purses in Pieces".

Fyi another source fir chain maille links is The Ring Lord. They have everytype of ring you can think of from Aluminum to Gold.

I used macramé rings from a hobby store.  Strong round and available in various sizes.
