When we have a booth at a craft show or festival, obviously, we love showing off our love of chainmaille. We also like to have some fun with our visitors! Who doesn’t love a good contest and winning free things?!

Last month, at the 2014 Bead&Button Show, we revived our Guess How Many Jump Rings are in the Jar contest. We placed our trusty jar on the counter and the entries piled up. Guesses came in for a couple hundred (um, nope) to a couple million (again, nope). The winner of that contest was SO CLOSE to the actual number — she definitely deserved her prize.

We know not everyone can come see us at shows, *sniff* so here’s your chance to win the online version of Guess How Many Jump Rings are in the Jar contest! Based on these photos — which include a few angles and a ruler for scale; the rings are L16 AA. The round jar is approximately 9.5 inches tall and 5.5 inches wide. If you’re familiar with the jars full of pretzels that you can buy at warehouse stores, then you’ve got the idea.

Give us your best guess in the comments, or email us at [email protected] with the words JAR CONTEST and your guess in the subject line of the email by Monday, July 14, 2014.

The entry closest to the actual number of rings in the jar will win a B3 goody bag valued at approximately $75!

Happy guessing!
