These soft glass, 104 COE rods are imported from Italy where they have been made by the same company using the same recipes for generations.
Stringer rods are 2mm wide on average (about the size of a spaghetti noodle) and are great for adding details to your lampworked and fused glass projects. They're great for dots and stripes and I love to use them to pull my own latticino. They can even be bent using the heat of an ordinary candle into shapes.
They are easy to melt and long working which makes them a favorite of many marble and bead makers.
Mixed stringer is made of a random mix of colors and transparencies. I pull these carefully to make sure there are few if any duplicates.
Quantity/Weight: You will receive two ounces of rods. A two ounce bundle yields about 12 rods on average
Length: Approximately 13 inches long
Width: These are 2mm wide on average
