Hand made zanfirico glass canes are used to make unique earrings in a glass fusing kiln.
Zanfirico style cane is normally made by glass bead makers who specialize in hot torch work and use these glass canes when making flame worked beads.
These canes have a twisted colored core encased in clear glass.
The canes used for this project are 96 COE and adapt to normal glass fusing without any difficulties and makes colorful earrings.
COE 90 and COE 104 canes are also available in a great range of colors. A search of the Internet will find a number of bead makers who supply this type of cane as well as some very nice glass frit.
As these are hand made the diameter can be between 5 and 10mm, the canes come in various colors and lengths
