Specialty Borosilicate Glass Memory Beads
Do you want a more complex glass color for your bead or pendant?
Our specialty glass is borosilicate glass. We use a variety of boro glass manufacturers. This glass is considered “hard glass”. The metals used to color borosilicate glass, particularly silver, often create strikingly beautiful and unpredictable results when melted in an oxygen-gas torch flame. This glass needs a higher temperature flame as well as a longer annealing time in the kiln. Due to the nature of this glass, we can only combine these colors. We can’t combine with the Messy soft glass we use. The borosilicate glass produces such beautiful colors from just one rod adding a second isn’t really necessary.
