My best e-bay buy ever!


$36au(about $27us) including postage - and I love every cm, every gram of the 4.9 kilos, every twist that is going to be formed.

What is it you ask? Copper wire! And I love copper soooooo much. The large wooden reel (gotta love the reel) - is about 28 guage and will last a life time. The dark red to the right is about 14 guage and the others fit inbetween.

This glorious wire is insulation wire found in a shed and at this stage is still covered in dust. I am not sure if I will be able to use it for jewellery - but for assemblage, pure bliss! The copper goes all the way through. The reels are gorgeous. And I do not have time to play today. Aaaagh, I am itching to get my fingers on it.

Hi there Julie

What a perfect purchase for you!!!
I know you will get so much use from these rolls of copper. And what a bargain too (yay).

Love all the colors but the red is my favorite.

Can't wait to see what your creative mind comes up with.

I can understand you itching to play with it!

Sorry Nat it was a one off from a man having an on-line garage sale - I don't think he had considered jewellery and the like. I should feel guilty - I really should ...

Not yet Kim, but I am sure they will arrive. Mail seems to take longer since the latest terrorism threats.
