Quick easy pendant, November 29, 2012 5 stars
Pros
Recycle glass "leftovers", balanced shape, quick & easy pendant
Cons
Only makes 1 at a time unless you buy more; Post in the mold makes the Boron Nitride release recommended.
Other Thoughts
Fill weight worked out to 20 grams of 104 COE frit. I'll buy additional molds so I can make more than 1 per kiln run.

Makes a really cute pendant/Christmas ornament, November 29, 2012 5 stars
Pros
Easy to use, shape is very recognizable, finished piece becomes a necklace quick with silk ribbons/leather. I bought it to make Christmas ornaments for some wine-loving friends.
Cons
Only makes 1 at a time, post in the center could be fragile; I used the Primo Primer ONCE. After a 24-hour soak in water poking at the edges with a toothpick, it finally released from mold. The Boron Nitride spray allows for a MUCH easier release. I won't use the Primo Primer in a mold with a post again.
Other Thoughts
I agree with the prior user that noted 0.7 ounces (just under 20 grams) as the appropriate fill weight.
