@Robert Gentel,
WOW...

that is one of my geeky things. I have I collection of paperweights, which I reckon must be made the same way as those hand crafted marbles. Each one is a work of art in it's own right. I find them very calming and beatiful - nice to touch as well, and of course, the little fella has a few hundred marbles scattered around his bedroom and in the hoover!!!!!!!

Thanks for that - never knew how that was done - don't s'pose you can post one that shows how they get flowers and stuff into paperwieghts a? Do find it quite fascinating. Would like to blow glass before my times up - think that's something worth trying!

I've watched some glass blowing live, but never marble making. Very cool.
