I started on a HH almost 13 yrs ago and I'm still on it - using a 27# tank of propylene. The noise helps me concentrate and I'm perfectly happy with the slower melt factor.

I've gotten some CIM lately and the one I really like is Gelly's Sty. It's a great pink. The others I bought were quite similar to Moretti and Vetro - not worth the extra $$$.

I always order my leather cording from Rio Grande. I then make an adjustable (simple slip knot thing) for a cheaper necklace. PM me if you'd like and I could send you a pic.
