Bookmarked this site, CALAM. I, too, was surprised at the sizes the teacher had. 'course, she's been to Murano several times, and buys like there's no tomorrow. I use it to fill holes now and then, but am too stingy to buy tons of it - like smalti. CALAM - Sam put a few of the larger pieces into the kiln. I put a cluster in and made a little flower for the center of the yellow flower in the PV piece.

Thanks for the link, Jane... especially about the tutorial! I've been using the "spread and smush" method on some stepping stones and was interested to see it used on a picture frame. Love the colors they used!
Waiting to see what Lori got, too! :)

I took the plunge and ordered a couple of the mixed sets. Received them Wed and am pleased. Not sure what they will be used for, but have them to use when I have a need for em.

youall are making me smile. Fair warning. once you get started buying from MM, it'll be an ounce here, an ounce there, and you'll end up with a drawer full like me!!! They send out emails when they get new stuff. Don't miss their little butterflies.

I've been looking at Murrine or murrini also, and there are quite a few people making it themselves, so that is an extra fun thing to use I think. I haven't bought any yet. I found one that has numbers, but I don't need so many. I'd love to put the date in my backsplash --- whatever year I actually finish that is.

I put one of Murano Millefiori's stars in my backsplash to mark the day my stepdaughter finished police academy, and her partner said, well how about a teacher apple for me? so I started looking for an apple and a month of googling later, found this site! I think they may actually be pumpkins, but if I put green behind them it should bring out the red.

OMG.. Betty~ I cringe when I get those emails.. I have no restraint for the stuff. Do you think they drug it? I am addicted.. I love to just play with it. It's a sickness .. Now I just went to that Bridgetown site.. I am having palpitations.. ( I think you're a pusher) : )
Sorry, I keep meaning to take photos.. Hopefully there will be some sun tomorrow. I want to use some good light while I play with my " preccioouusssssssss"
