Ordered a couple of times from this company in UK http://www.cooksongold.com/ (no VAT for all shipments outside UK). Everything was shipped fast, packaged extremely well, arrived safe.

There are couple of limitations for me (but most probably for you these are not a problem):

1. For some reason in UK (noticed that with at least 3 web-stores) verification of the credit card billing address is a problem if just one single dot, letter or space is placed differently from what is stored for your card with your bank. I do not know if it's the same for all the countries. So I had to use old but still good wire transfer (they do not accept PayPal I normally use to order online

2. Precious metals are forgiven to be sent in postal shipments. This is a "Russian speciality" (I've just deleted some dirty words here), so I can not order this stuff from them, but I hope this is not valid for USA.

The best place to purchase sterling silver or fine silver wire for me is RioGrande. They have a wonderful on line presence and the prices are some of the best I have found. They also ship quickly. Go to: http://www.riogrande.com/

And you are sure you don't want fine silver, correct?
Fine silver would be used in the flame, sterling silver for bending and twisting to make jewelry. =)

Ccaronn-- the instructions for use will differ depending on how you intend to use it.

Riogrande. They sell good quality merchandise and they indicate the country of origin. They are good enough for Warren Buffett to buy the company.
