Beading Q And A: Lampwork Bead Making (3/28/2011)

2011 March 28

Susan asks…

Where can you buy borosilicate glass rods and tubing for lampworking purposes in Las Vegas NV?

I am going to start blowing glass soon and I live in the Las Vegas / Henderson area. I am looking to find a place to buy glass rod and tubing to use. Also I am looking for possible glass blowing partners to do colabs and such.

BeadGal answers:

You may have problems getting boro in any particular city. Soft glass tubing used for neon is available through sign supply places. Arrow Springs shouldn’t be too much of a shipping expense http://www.arrowsprings.com and http://www.hotglass.com is a well established lampworking site that may be able to help you.
