I sell shards. Mine come packed in the aluminum glass topped tins 2oz each and the prices range $5 - $8 depending on the color or all 12 colors for $60, at that price it's like getting the gold ruby, which is the only $8, for free. : )

Donna, I can't find the shards on your web site. Actually, I can't find anything for sale, just a reference to new frit colors in your newsletter. Is there a link to a store missing?

Oh, I'm sorry! Haven't checked the thread lately.
I'm working on the on-line store... My banner ad, from a previous on-line store, is out dated... I'm sorry : (
I'll up-load photos tonight with the prices and a link. If you decide to order, send me an e-mail with colors and your zip code, I'll send you a paypal invoice.

Oh no, I feel so bad! I sell through e-mails and PM's, one of my best customers just sends me an e-mail with the colors and amounts she wants, I pull her order and let her know what her total is. It works out great. I carry the full line of Moretti/Effetre colors, Vetrofond odd lots, frits, cz's, fine silver wire, foil, leaf, mandrels, about 1/2 the colors of TE enamels.

Edited to add: I also have tools, the Nortel Minor Torch and all the little things like pixie dust, etc...
