  • Interesting Craft Wire

    Well, I was looking for somewhere to buy some stiff wires from, and I found these people : http://www.wires.co.uk/acatalog/craft.html
    They sell all sorts of interesting wire products, including knitted wire tubes.

    They've also got a gallery of unusual wire craftwork here : http://www.wires.co.uk/acatalog/gallery.html
    Cheers,

      Thought there might be some useful stuff there for you guys!

      Dunno if they have the thin, stiff stuff I want to make mobiles with, though - I've sent them an email, and hopefully they'll get back to me...
      Cheers,

        Oh no another place to tempt me into parting with my money there's some cool stuff on there, I'm liking the knitted wire, but I don't know what I'd do with it.

            Oh, so they do... thank you, Goldy1! Ah, but sadly, only as a kit of wires for one mobile, and they're out of stock... Plus they're £2.99 for 7 pieces of wire, which I consider a bit steep, to be honest.

            If I did but know what that sort of wire is actually called, I could doubtless find it easily - anyone got any idea?

            Glad the link's useful, though!

              could they be steel. I know when I bought some that it was very stiff wire and really hard to bend.

                  Mmm, yes. If I can't get some lengths, I'll have to use coat-hanger, as in that example. Thanks!

                      They are a really good company, they send quickly and have no minimum order either. I buy all my wire there.

                          The first mobile I designed and made was a gnome with a fishing rod and lots of fish twirling around a pink smily worm for my daughters 1st birthday, she's 21 next may. I now have it back as my ex was clearing out after our daughter moved out, it was broken so she was going to throw it out, all that was wrong with it was the string it hangs from the ceiling on had been snapped and the fish had all got tangled

                            That's cool, Shiner! Where do you get the wire from?

                            Oh, BTW, forget about Ormiston Wire - they waited a week, samples and umpteen emails to tell me that they sell un huge coils and their minimum order was £50!

                              Wires.co.uk which was the one mentioned in the start of this thread sell stainless steel wire. I have just got some .7mm to try out some ear wires with it. It seems quite stiff.
                              You can get up to 1.25mm in 50g spools. I'm not sure what length it would be but mine is probably well over 10 metres.
