Yep, more Lampwork Beads...Beyond the Beta Version...found odd lots
When the studio was moved, I didn't pack it. A bunch of family and friends came over...they did it. I just stood around. At the time, I didn't have any grip in my hands so I kept on dropping things. Yeah, that was really kewl when dealing with glass rods. Anyway, I finally took an inventory of what I have to make a few orders because I was out of a few things. I also found a couple of boxes/tubes that either were not unpacked yet or sitting in a very dark area of my glass storage area. I found things like a bunch of Gaffer and Zimmerman. For those that aren't lampworkers or glass people, Zimmerman is now out of business and Gaffer does limited pulls of their veiled glasses. I also found PI glass...another company that is now out of business. Too bad too!!! OMG, their glass is 96COE but it melts like butter. Their factor is now the new CiM factory.
I also found several pounds of River Rock...Poppy Coral...Sea Green...Amber Rose...Garret trans...Terra...several different types of odd lot silvered glasses...lots of old ASK. So, it's time that I use some of this...why save it??? I can hear the glass calling to me...'melt me, melt me, melt me'. :-) Why do I need over 5 lbs of pineapple sparkle or key lime or yellow ice or the really old yellow opal???? I've got odd lots that I've never heard of before. Like a couple rods marked, blue amber rose???? Or sunshine coral???? I doubt that they are real because I got them from a supplier that gone out of business. I have no idea what they really are...hell, they are pretty and they are glass, I'll just melt them and find out. :-)
