Copper Wire

Price January 2006: $95.00

Price October 2006: $199.00

Price increases are expected. But the mega jump in copper prices (not just wire, but hard copper that I use lots of too), is a drag.


  1. Can you purchase recycled copper in wire form? that is really expensive!!

  2. Thanks for the idea. I do use recycled materials or scraps for many aspects of my work, but I use so much of this wire, I can't afford the time it would take to always track down a source. But who knows, it may come to that. Tim~

  3. Wow, really expensive! I hear that a lot of construction sites have to watch that this copper isn't stolen from buildings in progress.

    Beautiful chimes, however, Tim...I collect wind chimes and love them, in all their forms.

  4. Hi Marion,
    Thanks for the nice comment. Yes, that's right. Even my supply store was broken into and had copper pipe stolen. From being just supplies I had sitting around outside, I've come to think I almost should lock this stuff up! Thanks, too, for the nice compliment about my wind chimes. Tim~
