Hi Debra,
I find these extremely helpful. I've only been doing this for a year now. I did not save my glass color description. Now I have to go back through my huge collection of glass and figure out what color the rods are. I have mostly Moretti glass but some Vetrofond also. What was I thinking? Thanks for your spreadsheet and color chart.

Thanks Becky! I was hoping I wasn't wasting my time! I am sick today and it is about the only thing I feel like doing! Almost done with the Effetre!

They're great!

I get a lot of my glass unlabeled, now I can finally "put names top faces".

These are VERY helpful! I had started to compile this myself, but didn't get that far, so I know how much time you have put into this. Thanks!

As if you haven't helped enough by putting these files together, how do you recommend doing the labels? The labels I have been using are on small sheets. Thanks again!

I actually use Avery 8867 Address Labels and the template for them in Microsoft word. I thought the excel file would be helpful to write the amount of labels needed and cut and past the names to the template. I hope this helps.

This is awesome. I have some glass that is so old that there are no numbers on them and this will be the easiest way to help label them.

Great work! CIM colors coming soon?

Debra thank you so much...sick or not, you did a great job! Thanks for taking the time and effort to do this I needed this. When I bought glass in the beginning I would just depend on the invoice for the colors lol..which were not always right. Then I got smarter lol and started marking the number on a piece of masking tape before leaving the store. That was before I started buying more than a rod or two. Neva know when that one special color becomes your favorite and it's an "odd" or "special and ya can no longer get it.
Anyways....thanks again!

Great to have in one place, but I'm going to make a comment, it may sound snarky, but did you make the paddles and take the photos yourself? That must of taken a lot of time.

Thanks everyone! I had to build a website and sign up for a domain and hosting service to have a place to put them. It was too much work to keep optimizing them! I had plans to do the website anyway. Now I will spend a lot of time getting it finished.

Most excellent! This is very helpful!

A couple of years ago I started tagging all my glass, and had created a bead cost spread sheet, it's kinda a pain to keep track of it all, but it helps a lot to know the exact amount of $ in glass are in each bead!

Thank you so much Debra. I was trying to identify some old glass rods with faded labels this evening. When I searched on Google for glass color charts, I was directly to this thread and found a wealth of information you posted. I truly appreciate your hard work and your generosity. Because of your effort, you made life easier for all of us.
