250 feet of seven strand bare copper wire.
I use a lot of copper: copper pipe for chimes, heavy copper wire for hooks and loops and hanging stones, and slightly lighter copper wire for wrapping glass. I go through a spool as pictured above about every six months.
These spools hold 250 feet of seven strand, and I unwrap the strands giving me a total of 1750 feet.
I calculate over my wire wrapping career, I've wrapped well over 9 miles of wire!
You can see what I do with all this wire by visiting my website: Coast Chimes.

Pacific Beach Stone Wind Chime
Recently I bought 100 high-speed diamond bits. As you can see from the picture, I have been busy with them! I love beach stone, and I am happy that my beach stone works are becoming increasingly popular.
Stone is a great choice. There is the beauty, and also the durability. When they get wet from the rain, they look even nicer!
You can find a selection of beach stone wind chimes on my website: Coast Chimes, Gallery Page.
They are also available on the arts and crafts website: Etsy
