Hey you fiber and jewelry folk! Anyone have a good source for raw silk cord? Thanks in advance! My buddy Robin (Shopmama) and I are looking for some to use with our beads....

Here's a llink to an auction with what we're looking for.....

Here is a link I have bookmarked. It isn't raw silk but the colors look gorgeous. I'm going to try some myself.

I want some of that stuff now Nancy!

Okay, I have a question, do the fiber arts people have shows like bead people do?

I want a show where I can go shop for raw silk and such.

Good one Karen! What about the type that is already finished on the ends? Robin and I were talking and wondered about the unfinished ends when bought in bulk....

Oh Karen, wonderful link. I just ordered a whole bunch by the yard to determine which ones I would like in bulk and 7/16th of an inch. I can't wait to see them. The thumbnails were so small! Thanks.
