Will you be carrying sheets of 18 guage copper and brass?

We don't have immediate plans to.  However, what will you be using it for?  And what size (x by y) would you find most useful?

Oh, I forgot to ask. What quantity are you interested in? Our supplier has large (4 foot by 6 foot?) sheets which they cut into the small 6x6" or 6 x 1/2" pieces we sell. We have to buy in multiples of their full sheet.

Years ago, when my mother (co owner Dee Mueller) made custom jewelry she needed a small piece of heavy copper sheet for a buckle. She could not find a supplier for the small size. She ended up borrowing a small piece from Harold Balazs the nationally known Spokane artist who makes large enameled panels. He bought full sheets of copper and had a scrap that was perfect for Dee's job. If you only need a small piece you might find a similar source close to home.

I use it for bangles...and usually buy it in 6 x 12" sheets...also like brass and nickel silver...sterling too...if the price would come down...I would only be buying a few sheets of each..so probably not worth you bringing it in for me...

You are right, Mariannemac, we'd probably want a few more customers before we add that.   Cheesy

A quick Google search for 18 guage copper sheet finds several likely suppliers including Thunderbird Supply, Ottofrei.com, jewelrysupply.com and several etsy and artfire sellers who DO stock it..
