Pros : Putting everything in a kit is easier than looking all over for the right metal rods that fit together. Especially if you are a first timer.
Cons : No instructions. If you have never used this before, then it takes a bit to figure it out.

Pros : Brass tubing is the best hinge material I've found. It's sturdy and easy to solder unto copper foil and makes a beautifully finished look.
Cons : Just remember to put wooden toothpicks in the ends of the tubing before soldering to keep the holes open.
Other Thoughts : Small needle nose pliers work best for bending the insertion rods, as they make nice crisp right angles.

1-2-3 Alphabet Soup Make your style personal and creative. Use numbers and letters to personalize your home dcor. Various fonts, sizes, colors and unusual applications create striking results. Initials, monograms and words add depth and sometimes amusement to a bare wall or boring box, and will always require a second look. Numbers are also popular. A house number, significant date, anniversary or just a favorite number (mine is 16) all add a personal touch to everyday projects. Todays numbers appear clean, fresh and new again. Combining new project ideas and vintage pieces, can be show stopping when displayed together. Whatever you create, youll be #1, and get an A for your efforts. Drawer Pulls / Knobs A quick and easy project that everyone can do. When added to a piece of furniture, drawer pulls instantly give a room personality. Initials or monograms are fun and creative and will be unexpected.

Photographing glass objects is not easy, and yet, its often the photograph that sells the piece. If youre advertising classes online or selling your work on Ebay, Etsy or ArtFire, good photography is essential. Heres what you will need 1. A light tent. You can purchase one for about $100, or you can make your own relatively inexpensively. Read this article for step-by-step instructions on making your own light tent. 2. Light fixtures. You need at least one light for illuminating directly onto the object from above. If you have a desk lamp with an adjustable neck, that will work. If you are getting too many shadows, or too much glare, you may need a set of lights to illuminate the sides of the box instead. Just make sure youre using daylight or full spectrum bulbs, and that all of your fixtures are equipped with the same type of bulb.

For an art glass enthusiast, discovering the Stained Glass Studio of Clearwater, FL is like a fried foods addict finding the fairgrounds. Its sensory overload. Large panels hang from the ceiling, small panels are posted on lightboards, and a large mixed-media piranha looms in the front window. You could spend hours in the 2400-square-foot studio and not find all of the art glass treats sprinkled around. Owner Kathleen Bromley is like the Willy Wonka of this proverbial chocolate shop. Her studio, located on US 19 attracts tourists, snow birds and locals of all ages, and she has diversified her offerings to appeal to multiple audiences. We went to visit Kathleen at her studio while a class was in session. Her students were learning how to make glass kaleidoscopes. She broke away from teaching long enough to introduce her staff and give us a quick tour. She, like her shop,
