    Glass Eyes

    Chance Encounter: I bumped into a fellow making jewelry a couple of days ago got me thinking. What he was doing might have useful fishing lure potential. I have always liked the real glass eyes on the old wooden lures. As soon as I saw these the bells were going off. The process: This Craftsman was making beads and pendants by taking a short section of a glass rod and setting it on another piece of glass and putting several such assemblies into a temperature controlled oven. A while later out comes coin sized pendants with a fancy design that was the section of glass rod. The glass sheet and section of colored rod are melted together as one and the glass "slumps" into a nice curved smooth oval. The glass rods with the design that is extruded from end to end are called "Millefiori." (Various spellings exist for the same thing) Result: After a bit of chatting and I mentioned my interest in making fishing lures and the possibilities of just using the "slumped" rod sections as lure eyes. After a few odd looks, we all know what I mean, he warmed up to the idea and went on to explain in detail the process. Today in the mail I got a nice assortment of various sizes and colors of what he had on hand. I think they will make great eyes. Even better yet with the right colors. The ones he sent are from about 1mm to 6mm right in the range that are usable for bass sized lures. When I get some lures finished using the eyes I'll post for the group to see.
