  •   I love my kit!
By on
Pros : This kit is a great starter kit, especially if you want to make sure you like lampwork without a huge investment. It comes with everything you need but protective eyewear and MAPP gas. Worth every penny!
Cons : The instructional video is non informative. I just researched lampworking forums and videos and made some great beads after.
Other Thoughts : I am super happy with my purchase! I have managed to pull nice colors from some of the special silver glasses on my torch even thought it isn't as hot and propane/oxygen torch.

  •   DVD
By on
Pros : The kit itself is excellent for a beginner and getting started
Cons : The "instructional DVD" advertised on the box cover is a joke. Leave it out or make it truly instructional!
Other Thoughts : The instructional DVD should include setting up the torch and making a bead more in detail. Rods are round but video shows a rectangular piece of glass that I've never seen and am not sure where you would even purchase. If I didn't know about beadmaking before I got the kit, I would have been very disappointed in the DVD and would have returned the kit.

By now, youre probably aware of Delphis partnership with the Beads of Courage program. For those of you who arent, heres a quick overview. Beads of Courage brings handmade beads to children receiving treatment for life-threatening illnesses. A bead is awarded by the childs healthcare provider for treatment milestones like blood transfusions, chemotherapy treatments and surgeries to document the childs treatment journey. The success of Beads of Courage is completely reliant on artists and volunteers. Since 2004, more than 500,000 beads have been donated by lampworkers, clay workers, woodworkers and other bead artists, and we want YOU to get in on the action. Were so passionate about this cause, weve pledged to donate 100,000 beads to Beads of Courage, and we need your help. Were asking you to make a few extra glass beads the next time youre in your studio. Send them to Delphi and in return, well give
