Nice, simple bails, January 16, 2010 5 stars
Pros
These sit nicely on all the pendants I've made, never have they come off. They have a nice bit of shine to them but don't distract from the pendant itself.
Cons
Haven't experienced any yet.
Other Thoughts
I like to string some of my pendants onto 1/2" ribbons, and the loops on these accommodate it nicely without scrunching it too much.

Still working out the kinks, December 29, 2009 3 stars
Pros
It gives a very nice shimmer to fired glass, and a little seems to go a long way.
Cons
I didn't realize that it would not fuse onto the iridescent side of glass, so that left one batch with all the powder rubbing off on my hands. Also one time I tried to do a second coat to add more shimmer it just turned out more like a white coating.
Other Thoughts
I'm still pretty new to glass fusing, so I wouldn't take my experiences as being what yours might. I think probably with more experience and knowledge of the product you will have a better outcome.
