Sterling Silver Wrap Adjustable Ring

Sterling Silver Wrap Adjustable Ring

Item# 704104
These are Great!, October 24, 2009 5 stars
Pros
I have bought at least 20 of these and not one has broken. In addition to gluing them directly to your glass, they can be soldered or glued to your Metal clay projects or any bezel cup. They also have a .925 mark stamped on them and the wavy ones do not.
Cons
Their shape gets a little wonky as you work them, but it is worth being able to put my ring creations on any of my customers fingers.
Other Thoughts
Delphi-Please don't discontinue them!

WOW!, September 21, 2009 5 stars
Pros
I use only Lead Free as I have a child in the house and the lead can go through the air vents and everything. I have always known that this is the less preferred method as it is thought that Lead free Solders are harder to work with. I wanted to find one that I could purchase at Delphi with the rest of my supplies. I finally got up the nerve to try this solder and all can say is WOW! I love it! It leaves an even better bead line and "level pools" very nicely. It lets you leave the iron on it a little longer to get the perfect dome without turning too thin and running too quickly. It has even taken the patina better! Granted--I use a scotch pad with Dawn to clean the flux/solder before hand--but I used the same method with other solder and did not have as good results as with the Mastercraft.
Cons
I wish I would have tried it sooner!
Morton Glass Caddy

Morton Glass Caddy

Item# 7151
Organized!, July 10, 2008 4 stars
Pros
This caddy holds 3 averaged sized sheets of glass per slot and is wonderful for keeping glass under control! I have my glass stored in a cabinet and use three of the caddies on each shelf. I also have one caddy on my table so that as I pull glass for projects I can keep it organized as well.
Cons
A slight pain to put together.
