i hear a lot of people talk about fusing nichrome wire into glass but i cant find a uk wire/metal dealer that even knows what it is let alone stocks it. i was wondering if it goes by another name over here? any ideas you guys?
thanks

nichrome wire is used in ceramic kilns and can be bought from Bath Potters or alternatively Creative Glass is Rochester. Carolyn

Here in ths US, this is sometimes also called "high temperature" wire. Maybe that term will help them figure out what you're looking for.

Good luck!
