Hi Alexis. I've made some of these over the years, but I found the 'trick', if you will, is to very lightly dust with baking soda. Most folks, I think, roll in baking soda with the glass almost molten. It picks up too much baking soda and so it continues to react with the glass for a very long time. I've got a couple that i kept that I've been wearing since the early 2000's that have never flaked or disintegrated. HTH
