They are beautiful. I use the small bottles to make hummingbird feeders and needed an idea for the larger bottles. How did you make them? I have about 20 large bottles just sitting around.

I love your work! It's great.

I have a weakness for the cobalt blue and the old red glass from the depression era. I have a collection of both, naturally more blue than red. I am so happy they have started making blue glass again because between you Cheryl, and Karen (Wuvie) I just have to get my fingers into trying glass work too. I certainly would not use the old blue stuff but the new stuff - oh yeah! I am anxious to try mosaic which I have never done and I think I might know where to get a small kiln cheap ;-) I don't know about that yet. but will check it out. Alas.... so many things to learn and so little time in a day!

You said you have several saws you use. Are any a tile saw? If so, I assume that is a wet saw? Or are they more a diamond type disc that looks kind of like a rough sandpaper? Have you ever tried the bottle cutter they sell at Michael's? I didn't know they had one until I saw it on the TLC program "Craft Wars". I don't know what it costs, but it seemed to work well with the girl and a gentle touch. The guy was tapping too hard and broke the bottle but it looked like an easy non-messy tool. Using their weekly 40% off coupon could make it real cheap! After all - free is me, but half price is nice.

Also, I'm glad you're going to sell some at a local shop but I might suggest you also try eBay. I've sold stuff on there for years. Yes, there are fees but you just charge a little more to cover that. The thing is, they now allow you to list 50 things each month and you pay no fees, unless it sells. It's a wonderful way to try and with Christmas coming, school already started, I will tell you people will be looking for these types of unique one of a kind items for gifts. Give it a try - you have absolutely nothing to lose if it doesn't sell and everything to gain. They have millions of customers not just a few locally. I've shipped things I sold to several countries so it really is a global marketplace. Good luck!

Hi Lovetopaint,
Thank you . :) Yes I too love the Blue it seems lots of people do its hard to get ...
Yes one of my saws is a tilesaw All my saws are wet saws. I have the G2 bottle cutter ( I won it in a T2T contest ) its Crap, If I had paid for it it would have gone back.

I use to sell things on Ebay but its a real pain for me as Im 30 miles from the nearest postoffice and only go to town when needed.
