Urgh ! I checked the site and sent email to them about the shipping to Sydney.
Up to 2kg (4.3lb ?) for 19.50 Euro (US$28.8 ) or 2kg - 5kg (4.3lb - 10.8lb ?) for 52 Euro (US$71)

That's hurt more than shipping from US to us.

I better wait hehe

I had managed to hold off ordering until I saw the 2 new reds this morning. Can't tell you how many times I added and took off of my order - I really want 2 or 3 of each! - but finally settled on only 4, including the Red Jasper. Better start selling some beads to pay for all of this!

Okay, now this is soooooo unfair; there's even glass that "I" want, and I've never purchased anything internationally.

Damn. I. need. more. glass. like. I. need. a. hole. in. my. head.

I'm thankful I decided to sell half of the presses I own. Of course that was suppose to go to 'Build My Studio' fund. Hmm...

Melissa-you are right!
Today is overcast...the colors are lighter than the pics show, but you get the idea.
Watermelon turns grey in the flame and you can really see the sparkles much more in the flame than the poppy.
Here is Poppy on the bottom, Watermelon on the top

and the Rosehip looks different from Orange Punch on the rod, but melt up similar. rose hip had a bit more streaks of opaque in it for me.....
Rosehip at the bottom, middle is Candy Apple top is orange punch(these colors should be vice versa)

Perfect example Nagi! This is exactly what I got. There's also sparkles in the Salmon Pink but it totally disappears in the finished bead.

That makes a pretty sunset bead.

You guys should have seen my at my computer yesterday drooling over those colors trying to narrow it down so I didn't order them all! And I'm already getting rid of some other glass to try to take a class in October. It's a disease!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AHA!!!!!

so THIS is where you all have gone!!!

just quickly skimming this there are a few things i can clear up..

as we tested the colours for vetrofond this time we agreed names up front and have cleared them with mike... last i heard we were both on the same page this time and we would have the same names AND product codes to avoid the confusion from last time!!!

we are OUT of the original vetro avocado!!!! someone ordered a few pounds and cleared us out!! we have both smooth and rough versions mixed in the racks - or should i say "had"?..

mike's airfreighted colours should be there soon now - i now the factory closed last Friday and they are gone for the month of august at least!!!.. that's why the red jasper was the last two to make it to me, as they were right at the end of the production schedule!!

as far as shipping goes we charge only what the post charges us in all cases, we add nothing for packing etc its not our style!!.. we are VERY sorry for our australian customers, but that's what the charges are - i suspect you will have reasone to be cheerful when mike gets his stock in house!!

the colours ARE just incredible... we have been amazed by how much time and effort the vetro team are putting into mike's idea for odd lots, and the stunning and unusual colours the factory is achieving for us!!

pleae email or pm me for any info you need - to avoid cluttering this thread!!

Suzy-would you like to try before you buy? I can send you a couple of rods of each just in case you do already have the same coral. The red velvet is a nice dark red/maroon
naw, I have a need to own every glass even if I don't like it But thanks for the offer!

I got the newsletter, but I only see translucent ivory. You guys still posting colors? Are you getting all the colors that Quinton has? I don't want to wait too long, because Amber will buy them all!!

I so knew I should not have looked at their website. When I saw the Jasper's I just had to order and the honey crunch and all the avocado's. I am such a terrible glass addict, but they are soooo preeetttyy!
