    Default Why?

    is cookson beaded sterling wire 0ver 2600 / Kg (Product Code: NVZ 001 ).
    I realise you can ask whatever you like for whatever you like, but it seems well OTT.
    It's around a quarter of that price from Rio, and I'm fairly sure even doing a legit import and paying carriage, vat and any duty it would still be a huge saving.
    Does anyone know anywhere else it's available at a sensible price? I've had it from Bellore in the past but I seem to remember it wasn't cheap there either.
    Thanks.

    Lol I assumed the beads must be hand soldered together one at a time by a team of elves under Vittoria Street when I saw how much it was pretty tho - thanks for the Rio tip, I occasionally do get hard to find bits from them.

    Fraid I don't know anywhere else that carries it tho - I've only bought it from Cookson and then used sparingly!

    I've looked at a couple of other places and even Kernocraft want 45p per cm

    Dunno, but some quick maths told me an 18k wedding ring was 111,000 /kg. No, there are no typo extra digits in there!
