UPDATE: This company has amazing customer service! Evidently the bulbs are OK to put in enclosed fixtures so it was not user error and in fact an issue with the bulbs. They are replacing them for me. They will definitely be my main go to for Edison bulbs and I will be recommending them to friends. :) Very happy customer!
I love these! They are beautiful lights and give off a nice, warm glow. I did have three of them turn black right away, but I think it was my own fault. I think they got too hot in some of the light covers I had them in. User error. At least they are pretty enough to hang bare till I can get some cage light covers to put over them. I definitely plan on ordering more bulbs in the future!
