In addition to frits, you will find Strikingcolor Silver Glass Rods, dichroic scrap, stainless chopsticks, millefiori slices, and fine silver micro mesh Glass Shards

  Furnace Glass Frit

 Reduction glass have COE (coefficient of expansion) of 92-96 and are compatible with Uroboros 96 and Bullseye glass.  You can also use  them sparingly as surface decorations when working with Moretti glass.  Below are frits grouped by manufacturer.  They include Reichenbach, Zimmerman, Gaffer, and Loetz.

Frits price is per oz.  Sample beads are not included.  They are packaged in 4mm plastic zip lock bags . Many may look similar but can behave differently after application.  Therefore buying 1 oz to play is the smart way to test a new color. Recently both Reichenbach and Gaffer developed new and interesting reactive colors.  It is a great loss to the bead community that Zimmerman decided to discontinue their frit production.  Therefore I only have limited Zimmerman inventory on hand.

Italian Millefiori Slices

These canes are COE 104 and used for lampwork and fusing projects

Add to Cart $8.00

Strikingcolor by Brad Shulz.  Brad's glass are available maybe once or twice per month and each batch is different.  Brad sell them via Etsy or Artfire but they get sold out within hours and sometimes minutes after they are listed.  So one has to be quick and lucky to get them  These glass need to be heated until clear, let cool, and reintroduce into flame to strike.  Therefore, you should have a surface mix torch to make beads with them.

 Strikingcolor glass rods from various batches I have.  The rods will be labeled.  One or 2 rods may be shorts or odd size.  Majority will be about 4-6mm diameter and 11 inches long.  The sample beads not included.  To conserve the silver glass, I used clear Moretti core to make the beads.
