Great earring bails, August 25, 2017 5 stars

Hold glass cabs at the perfect angle to dangle correctly.

Occasionally you will get one in the pack of 24 with a less than perfect plating.

Fabulous!, May 29, 2012 5 stars
Pros
This glass is gorgeous and the 4x4 piece I received looks just like the photo shown (give or take a little with width of some colors). Smooth glass cuts easily. Colors hold true after firing.
Cons
Other Thoughts
You know how some manufacturers show a photo of the entire 19 or 20" piece, then you just get a tiny piece of the pattern in your 4x4? Well, that's not the case here. A minimum of 1/2 of the 4 x 4 sheet had these nice thin streaks of color, but it was most often 3/4 of the piece with the thin streaks. I ordered 5 pieces and they are all lovely!

horrible results, December 13, 2009 1 stars
Pros
None that I've observed, unfortunately.
Cons
Color is just paint on the back of the glass. Use extreme care in cleaning your glass before you fuse it - the paint will wash right off! Also, it still rubs off after fusing wherever it has bled through. Fusing a large piece had disastrous results, with the entire center of the piece burnt & bubbled, plus the color changed about 1" in from the sides.
Other Thoughts
This stuff looked very promising, but doesn't live up to expectations.
