Pros
I love using the royal glass over black for stunning pieces. I won 3rd place in a Gallery show last year with one of my pieces that was wire wrapped in sterling silver.
Cons
When working with any of the royal glass, be careful not to get water on the metal coating when grinding the edges. If it stays there too long, the coating comes off. Of course, you can come up with a really funky piece this way too. So nothing lost.

Pros
If making a piece 3" square of larger, you are able to get the effect of the two colors. For smaller pieces it doesn't work as well.
Cons
I tried using this for jewelry. If the pendant was large enough to cut over the two colors, it came out very pretty. But for tiny earrings, you only get one or the other of the silver or gold.
