Association of Stained Glass Lamp Artists
The Association of Stained Glass Lamp Artists is a non-profit organization registered in the state of Washington. Its purpose is to perpetuate, improve, and promote the art and craft of stained glass lamp construction. The Association was born in the mind of Carol Conti. As a teacher of the craft of stained glass, she discovered in her students a desire to go beyond glass crafting to actual "creating" using the medium of glass. She nurtured this desire, and in the process found that the creative intuitions of her compatriots blossomed into masterworks through the sharing and support that is inevitable when like-minded people form an 'association'. With the help and encouragement of good friends, this dream was pursued and The Association of Stained Glass Lamp Artists was formed. The first meeting, in 1991, was attended by 30 lamp artists from Washington State. As of 2012, the ASGLA includes more than 800 member artists from twenty-seven countries and forty-eight states.
These jump rings are light-weight, but I am using them to attach small charms made of shrink plastic to earring wires with no losses so far. Probably not the best for higher stress items like bracelets.
Purchased two of these, one in Cobalt, one in Deep Blue for glass painting. The cobalt was a bit lighter, but still a nice color. I just wouldn't call it a true cobalt blue. Almost closer to a deeper sky blue when painted on glass. The deep blue paint was true to color. Both worked great.

I ordered one for my Japanese watercolor class. They perform as described in the ad. We can easily bring the bristles to a thin point to draw the thinnest lines or the broadest strokes. The brush was secured in the packaging so that it would not be damaged in transit and it arrived in perfect condition. Jo Boehm
