I don’t know of any sources besides Rio Grande and they are
discontinuing both the 14K gold and silver gallery wire. Last time I
checked they only had one version in gold and three in sterling. All
were under 100 oz remaining if I remember right.

If you find another source please post it.

Thanks,
Paul Ewing

Hello Paul,

I just called Rio and as you said they’re discontinuing the gallery
wires! Apparently the vendor supplying them is not going to make it
anymore. The person I talked to is going to talk to their special
order team and see what they have to say. I think everyone who uses
their gallery wires needs to call Rio and express their dismay. I
don’t know of another source with the range of designs in 14K that
Rio had. Thank goodness I bought quite a lot of the sterling, but
I’m really short on the gold.

Orchidians to the hunt! Please post any other sources of which you
might be aware.

To all of those interested in purchasing gold gallery wire.

I have been unable to find a company that stocks the 14k or 18k
gallery wire pattern that I am interested in purchasing.

The maker is in Germany.

Gust.Ad.Schmidt GmbH & Co.
Berliner Str. 23
D-75172 Pforzheim
phone: ++49 7231 144290
fax: ++ 49 7231 1442922
E-mail Gust.Ad.Schmidt@t-online.de

They have a minimum order of 10 meters per pattern and 2 styles or 20
meters total. 20 meters is a lot of gallery wire.

Perhaps there are enough people interested in the same wires that we
could all get together and place an order.

If anyone is interested, please contact me off list.
