System 96 Embellishments
While we've always been strong supporters of Bullseye glass for fusing, unfortunately we also have competitors ('the horror'... Mikey)- competitors who don't have the same allegiance to Bullseye as we do. We are the only full line dealer for Bullseye, and have carried all of Spectrum Sys 96 glass as well (it's actually quite easy as their selection is so small- 21 opals and 26 cathedrals- remember, the whole line is only somewhat bigger if you add in the colours made by Uroboros). We find that customers who end up in our store from elsewhere are usually using Spectrum as it is more readily available, whereas Bullseye is not. To appease these customers while we brow beat them into the virtues of Bullseye, we've widened our peripheral Sys 96 stuff, and are now carrying a full line of frits, powders and pebbles. We've put a link to Spectrum's System 96 catalogue (pdf file) here.
