I'm in WI , I've been doing stained glass for about 25 years . I do mostly lead wrapped suncatchers or wall art with some mosiacs thrown in for interest . When I first started out - solder was about $8 a pound. It's just about tripled in cost ! I bought a huge ( I mean HUGE ) roll of 12 gauge copper wire - it was $80 the first time. The last roll was $275 ! It's getting hard to finance my habit :)
Lead came ... ugh ... it's an arm and a leg . I use alot of metal in my suncatchers ,I'm glad I stocked up on things before the prices
shot up . How are the prices by you ? Have you noticed how fast they're rising ?
