I saw DMC Memory Thread at Michael's yesterday. It's a thin fiber-wrapped wire. I almost bought some but decided to think about what I might do with it first (imagine that, resisting an impulse buy craft item!). I don't see too much about it on the web for other than embroidery use -- has anyone used it for jewelry? I think it has possibilities. Here are thecolors and you get 3 ft for $2.99, if I recall correctly.
