IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING SUPPLIES: A full supply list can be found in your handouts (found in My PDFs in your account.) . There are some basic jewelry and inexpensive metal smithing tools that are needed in order to complete these projects in this video class and of course, you will need one fire PMC. The sources and direct links to these products are in the literature provided. The glass and essential supplies, such as texture mats, dichroic and shaping templates can be found at aaeglass.com. Those links are provided in your handouts as well. You will also need a glass grinder to complete these techniques. Although Gail uses a ring saw to cut out her shapes from a larger slab of glass, the jewelry pieces can easily be made individually and then just ground to shape.
