Fused Glass Jewelry Supplies

Making wonderfulFused Glass Jewelry Supplies mosaic tile art is easy! Let me show you how.
Always shop around before buying mosaic tools and materials. Many glass vendors now sell on the Internet. Some are great, some not so great. Some have a huge selection, but lousy prices and service. Some have a lousy selection, but great prices. Shop around before buying and you’ll eventually find a vendor you like.
Price differences among online vendors can be significant. For example, I found the exact same Fused Glass Jewelry Supplies at several online stores ranging in price from $3 to $7. Some vendors have great prices for glass but high mark-up on tools, and vice-versa. Decide whether shipping costs are worth splitting your order between two vendors or if it’s better to order everything from a single vendor who provides the best overall price.

Ensure you check the shipping charges before buying online. Does the vendor charge shipping based on weight or the cost of your order? Fused Glass Jewelry Supplies  and tools are heavy, so if they charge by weight, the shipping charges may surprise you. Additionally, some online vendors charge "boxing" fees that average about $7 per order.
Is service important to you? I’ve dealt with online vendors with cheap prices but they wouldn’t give me the time of day when I emailed questions. Long ago when I first thought about using stained glass, I had all kinds of questions that now might sound silly. But they weren’t silly to me at the time because stained glass was a new world for me and I didn’t know much about it. I used the vendor's "Contact Us" link on their website to ask my first question. I never got a reply, even after three tries. Needless to say, I never ordered anything from that vendor, regardless of their cheap prices.
