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.

RE: millefiori website!!!!

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"
