[Source] Memory wire

Memory Wire! Can anyone help me find a supplier with really good
strong memory wire? About 8 or 9 years ago we use to get memory wire
that was really strong and you could put just about anything on it
and it would hold its shape. The memory wire that alot of companies
are offering now is very flimsy. We do alot of work with handmade
glass beads. If you load up a piece of any of the memory wires we
have currently been trying… the wire loses its memory and is too
soft to go around your wrist or neck.

Does anyone have a suggestion for me? Thanks alot not only for
this… but for help on my last posting concerning a contaminated
vibratory tumbler. I had so many personal emails with lots of great
suggestions and tips. Thanks everyone!


I use memory wire from John Bead http://www.johnbead.com/ Canada It
holds its shape even when strung with heavy hematite beads. You must
be a business to buy from them. Note that you must use special wire
cutters to cut it as the steel will damage shears used for precious

You can also try Capilano Rock & Gem Phone: (604)987-5303; North
Vancouver, BC; V7G 1A1; Canada. They will sell to anyone and ship to
the US frequently.
