To enhance the perceived value of your work, consider using a high-end blank. A sheer rim soda lime piece looks more elegant than the standard beaded rim glasses. You can even consider using some of the new crystal-like glasses that have come into the market recently. These glasses have the clarity and acoustic qualities of the old lead crystal glass, cost about half the price of the lead crystal, and increase the perceived value of your creations. This is a great way to make more money for your time and labor.
