The Jewelry Artisan Community blog hop August topic is "Your Stash". Being a bead maker and metal smith I have a lot of stashes so which one to pick was a hard decision for me. I decided to show my glass stash, since I started and still focus most of my work around glass. Above is a photo of my glass rod storage, a wedding gift believe it or not. One of my favourite wedding gifts too! Glass has an endless colour palette and if you cannot locate the colour you need you can certainly mix colours to get what you want. The bulk of my glass is 104 COE but I'm slowly adding more and more borosilicate as I'm really enjoying working with it. I have a large collection of odd lot glass, Sedona, Candy (DK) Pink, Key Lime ummmm the colours.
Below is how I'd dream my ultimate glass stash to be if I had to have it another way. This photo was taken at the 2012 Gathering and one of the hot shops. Isn't it pretty?
