Little Glass Balls melted directly onto surgical steel posts. Flat-back rubber & steel backs.
I mostly use 104 COE glass – Effetre (formerly Moretti), Lausha, Messy, and assorted silver reactives like TAG and DH. Exceptions are my recycled glass beads, and those are specified as such. I work on either a Nortel Minor or GTT Lynx torch and anneal everything in either my Arrow Springs A-18 kiln or my Toolbox kiln. This means you don't have to worry about your beads breaking apart for no reason. :) It also strengthens them to more readily withstand the little accidents that happen, like drops or rolls off a dresser.
The picture is of actual item(s) for sale. I do my best to show the actual colors; please remember that monitors display colors differently, and while the color looks true to me, it may vary a little depending on your computer's graphic card and/or settings on your monitor. Exceptions will be noted.
