StrikingColor Glass makes limited production 104 compatible* striking silver glass.
After a deer/motorcycle induced hiatus, StrikingColor Glass is back.
However, due to other obligations, production will be extremely limited for the foreseeable future.
If you would like to be alerted when new glass is available, please go to this page to be added to the StrikingColor mailing list.

Below is a video of a bead made with StrikingColor VDA613 glass.
* "104 compatible" is a rather ambiguous term meaning that these glasses are generally compatible with other popular flameworking glasses considered "104 COE" such as Moretti/Effetre and Vetrofond. However, due to the fact that glass compatibility is dependent upon more than COE alone, as well as the fact that we have absolutely no say in the quality control of other manufacturers (and not even all of their own colors are compatible with each other), we at StrikingColor cannot guarantee our glasses to be universally compatible with those from any other manufacturer. If you will be mixing with glass from another manufacturer, compatibility testing with that glass before going into production is strongly encouraged.
(Warning - Turn down your sound before playing the video. The background music is pretty loud.)
If you want to save time and just see the striking of the bead, start the video at about the halfway point.
