So I have been fiddling in the background and I have a new item to sell. I love my glass, and it’s pretty, and I will still do it. But several years ago I got a bunch of boro glass, which is a lot harder, stiffer, than the Bullseye I usually use. I didn’t have the airpower, firepower, etc., to use it. With the addition of a second oxygen concentrator, I finally could mess around with boro. But I don’t want to make the same things in boro that I do Bullseye. So I decided to be practical.
Before you think I am totally strange, boro glass is Pyrex. These straws are very sturdy. Yes, they are glass, and like Pyrex cookware, you drop it, it might break. But it is less likely to, and under normal usage, like Pyrex, it’s safe for use, for microwave and dishwashing.
Want to know more? I have a lifetime guarantee on my straws, if one ever breaks, tell me, and I will replace it. I also have a handy GLASS STRAW FAQ for you.
There’s more designs coming than just the designer Dot one. I am going to sell one off ones in special colors, and a set of four that I call elements, with a straw each representing earth, air, fire, and water. You can get those separately, of course.
Anyway. These are fun and a great departure for me from the “everyday” of my beads. They are really fun to drink out of, feel better than crappy plastic with who knows what in it, and are just a little touch of elegance and eco-friendliness in today’s world.
