Where can I buy platinum wire?

    I need to have it before Monday, so preferably a brick and mortar store. I live in the States.

    I'd guess unless you live in a big town, google it and have it shipped 'next day'

    Sounds like a specialty item you're not likely to find in a brick and mortar store (and if you did, you'd probably still be paying for that shipping cost in the price of the item).

    Do you think a jeweler might carry it? Probably cheaper to just pay for overnight shipping, though. And I don't know if the type used for jewelry would be the same purity as you'd need for your project.
