Do pendants come with silver chains or cords?
We sell pendants and chains separately rather than including them in the cost as many people own one they'd like to use. Please see the chains that we offer at: http://sunriseglassart7.ecrater.com/category.php?cid=552424

If you pay using google checkout, you will receive an email from ecrater asking for your feedback. We'd greatly appreciate hearing about your experience! Alternatively, you may email a review to me at Lisa@SunriseGlassArt.com, to be posted on this site.

What fusing schedule do you use for your dichroic pendants?
I use all COE 90 compatible glass and I use the following fusing schedule: Ramp the kiln at 300 degrees F per hour to 800 degrees. Hold for 5 minutes. Ramp at 900 degrees/hour to 1375 degrees (for a full fuse). Hold for 20 minutes. Ramp at full to 900 degrees. Hold for 30 minutes. Ramp at 200 degrees/hour to 400 degrees. Cool at natural rate to room temperature. This kiln cycle usually takes about 16 hours to complete and produces fully rounded and fused pendants.
How durable are your coasters?
The coasters and the pendants are all pretty sturdy. I've seen them dropped numerous times, and not one has cracked. Similarly, the pendants are extremely difficult to break.
