Dear Lighting Group,

I would like to ask if any of you know where i can get stiff cord, it is
not ordernery cord but a kind i saw on some lighting fixtures some time
ago.
It looks like normaly cord with wowen fabric outside but its stiff
properly because there is a tube of some kind inside containing the net
cabels.

It looks funny when a normal pendant can stand upside down, and its
looks like the gravety has turned up side down.

I hope that you have seen this type of cord and hopefully can dirrect me
to a place where i can get hold of it, because i like to make some
"funny" lighting fixtures.

Stiff lamp cord is hard to find; but I've used standard building wire
(non-stranded) for such things. It's a bit difficult to do the terminations
since fairly large diameter wire is required (#12 or #10 in US sizes).

You can also make your own. Take standard lamp cord, add a bare stiff wire
and encase the whole thing in an outer jacket.

How about sliding some braid over a piece of thin metal tubing?
