I'd been thinking about trying lampworking and saw Devardi Glass on Amazon.com. I liked what I saw and got quick responses to the first questions I asked, before I even got the kit. I ended up getting an Elite Starter Kit, and a Mini Glass Bead Annealer. I couldn't be happier. It had everything I needed to get started.
I live in Alaska and many companies charge much more to ship to us. Devardi glass has the same rates for us as the lower 48, I really like that.
I have made additional orders from Devardi Glass, changed my mind, made a mistake, added an item, no problems, Natasha has been very understanding, even dropping additional shipping for an item I added to an order.
The Devardi Glass dvd is perfect for a beginner like me. Daniel is a wonderful instructor, patient and thorough, explaining in easy to understand terms so a novice like me has no problem following his lead. His dad playing the piano is the perfect accompaniment.
I've had many many questions and Natasha at Devardi Glass answers them promptly, I never have to wait very long. Since I don't know anyone that does lampwork, having her available for whatever happens to come up is invaluable to me. She shares in my excitement and enthusiasm, never making me feel like a pest. I can't wait to share pictures of my 1st really well done bead with her.
I highly recommend Devardi Glass to anyone that has a need for lampworking . Wonderful product and customer service, a real feeling of family. I'm really glad I chose to get started with Devardi Glass.

Kit is fine and appears to include the basics you need to create a bead. However, the DVD enclosed does NOT include an introductory tutorial of any kind. We found their videos on YouTube and not one of them is geared for the complete newbie. Hoping that the enclosed DVD would be different, we played it and found that it is simply a compilation of what was on YouTube. What we need is a no-kidding rookie video - 1. Here's what was included in your starter kit. 2. Here is what each item is for. 3. Now, let's set up our work area. 4. Let's prep to make your first bead. 5. Make your first bead.

Fortunately I bought a book separately and that is giving us some clues, but honestly, the initial enthusiasm has waned a little because we're just not sure what we're doing or why. I'm hoping with some more YouTube searching I can find other people who explain the process for beginners, but DeVardi certainly does not.

P.S. - I know it's a relative playing piano and he's quite good, but I don't need music in the background of an instructional video. It's distracting.

Kit has everything we needed to get started (except the gas which we got at a Home Center store) - and we're having a lot of fun. Getting the technique right takes a little time, but that is part of the fun, and most of our first beads are definitely wearable! I'd recommend getting additional glass and mandrels if you know you'll have several people sharing the kit, because as soon as you finish one you want to try another, and the dvd is really helpful.

I was amazed at all the pieces that came with this kit, it truly came with everything I needed to get started. The only thing I needed to pick up was the MAPP gas from Lowes (less than $10, and lasts a while). I also picked up some safety goggles. Anyway - Long story short this seller is amazing and they will contact you back within hours. I really like their speedy customer service! Natasha is a pleasure to work with. Item was packaged very carefully - despite its contents, nothing was broken. I will be a Devardi customer for life! :) Thanks again.

Never wrote a review before and i was so impressed with this kit, that i thought id write a little something. iv been looking around for months for a torch kit, i was waiting for something that i knew was gonna be good and well it was worth the wait. everything in the kit is needed and worked very well. this kit came very fast in the mail too! if your just getting started then this is for you, this kit will help you get comfortable with the flame and how glass works. thanks guys, and i will be buying more stuff from you.

Excellent starter kit here! I just got mine the other day and I got a great selection of glass. I did have an issue with my torch not operating properly, but the seller responded to my message almost immediately and offered to send a replacement at no cost! I was able to use the torch once before it malfunctioned and really had a great time with it. I recommend this set, not only for the value, but because it's coming from a seller that genuinely cares about their customers!

I can't believe how much fun this is! I am totally addicted to melting glass! Even in the heat of Florida summer I'm spending all my free time making beads! I can't believe how easy it was to get started and the video's on their website are great training.

I am totally thrilled with my kit...the video that came with the kit is great, I have watched it from start to finish. Technically, I haven't started making any glass beads yet. I still need a few more items before I can safely get started: If you are going to sell your glass beads that you would be making, you will need a kiln. I would also recommend a larger piece of stainless steal to place on top of your work area. Most important of all safety glasses and do your research. Devardi Glass carries most of the added items and tools you might need or want. You can purchase them from their website. When I do get started, I am going to have fun.~//(*.*)\\~
