Pros : Good quality, lasts long for many cuts. More artistic than glue on bails when using this groove maker with wire.
Cons : None that I can see.
Other Thoughts : Customers like the wire wrapped around the glass cabs better than glue on bails.

In 1979, a journey began. Thats the year Janet Schrader began working with glass, and she was immediately hooked. Color is a very important part of who I am, so finding all the properties of changing color in glass has held my interest for many years. I love how glass changes color depending not only on the light source but also that it changes from morning to night as the light quality changes. Around 1988, Janet encountered dichroic glass for the first time, and fusing became the new focus of her glass art launching her successful line of handmade jewelry which she sold nation-wide. Janets one-of-a-kind stained glass, jewelry and fused art have been met with enthusiasm, and winning awards including 1st and 2nd prize in the professional artist category for Fusion/Cast/Kiln work at the 2012 Glass Craft and Bead Expo in Las Vegas.
