Anyone know where I can get my hands on black *** cord for
necklaces...and telephone wire?
Lots of colors of telephone wire. Does this bake O.K.? I see it in lots
of work by poly artists.

The telephone wire is something you have to hunt around for. I know some
people get it from the phone company. Which is usually free, because they
just throw the scraps away anyway. Also I heard somewhere that you can get
this kind of wire at places like Radio Shack. Any place that has supplies
for phones and TVs.
And yes, the phone wire can be baked with the clay.

If you look in the yellow pages and look for elcetronics stores you will find
other stores besides Radio Shack. Give them a call and ask if they have 25 or
50 pair color coaded twisted pair solid (not stranded) phone cable.
Actually start by first asking if they have 25 pair phone cable. If they say
yes then aske if the strands are soled or stranded. The 50 pair cable will give
you 2 sets of what is offered in the 25 Pair and should coast less than 2
lengths of 25 pair. You will NOT need the individually shilded pairs. Or even a
shielded cable (shielding cost more).
We just took about 1000 pounds of it to the recycle point.
That is a normal for use each month.
But it will be cheeper if you can get it locally. the postage of this stuff is
out of sight.

If you want free telephone wire, call your local telephone company and
ask where the repair depot is(it may look like a warehouse fenced in and
lots of telephone trucks parked in the lot--I drove by our local one for
years and never saw it). So if you know where it is, stop in on business
Anyway, we walked in the office and asked if we could have some telephone
wire. The very nice man directed us to a bin--the wire was cut into
about 3 foot lengths and encased in black plastic sheathing and no
limit was given. We pushed the wire out and had enough wire to keep a
Girl Scout camp in wire for at least a couple of years and me in wire for
I also, previously, ordered some wire from NASCO, I beleive; but at the
moment I can't find the catalog. I think my daughter took it with her to
college. :0) S&S Crafts also had it a couple of years ago.
The cheapest place I know of for *** cord (and O rings) is IB Moore. I
think they are in Kentucky, although I forget. I'm at work and their phone
number is home, but maybe somebody has it now that I have mentioned them. You
mail order by phoning them and describing what you want, they sell by the
foot, and you can pay with a major credit card. Price depends on thickness,
and they sell every imaginable size from almost hair thin to something like an
inch thick. I think the 2mm size ran me about 17 cents a foot or something in
that ballpark. You can ask about O rings made of the same diameter cord with
the same diameter hole, to get a snugly fitting "bead" or spacer or ending for
a pendant cord...
I believe you can also find *** products in the yellow pages for a local
Also, some of the jewelry parts dealers now sell it, like Rio Grande. (More
expensive, same stuff. However, if you are ordering form them anyhow...)
Also I noticed last night that Discount School Supply is
selling colored wire.
At work and reading personal email??............good for you!

herbalist (a hunk!) and I found an herbal newsletter with a

writes such good letter's!"

Yes. You are both nuts, and doomed to dream about polymer clay
and it's effects on the human sex drive for eternity. No help
can be found for either of you, I'm afraid.
