Default Murrini -- those dirty rascals

So much to learn. When i see murrini for sale i assume that they are 5-6 mm chips. I NOW get it that i have to look for their size since, on websites they all look big. Are there murrini makers who have the 5-6 mm size as their "thing?"
i am not a tiny anything so bigger chips is what i would like to find.

Sara - We usually give a selection between 3-6mm but many of our customers who like the chips smaller (for sets) or larger (for focals) just add a comment to their orders and we always accommodate!

Hi Sara!
Sometimes loriandkim have what they call "Giants" - 6-8mm in size. I think right now they have 2 flavors:

http://www.loriandkim.com/item_455/C...ts-Murrini.htm

I'm sure you can always just ask the vendor if they have any on the larger size too.

Thank you Jenny! Yes, we have giants. I think we will have two more varieties for our next update, too.

newbie here, am still trying to master twisties at this point. Lori and Kim's giants are very vibrant and fun, i am looking for that size but in demur and reserved, maybe only 2-3 colors at most.
So, to summarize, each maker specifies the size of their product somewhere in their description (duh), and if not, i should ask for a specific size. makers are not "known" for the size of the murrini but probably the colors, complexity and style. yes?

Will have some of those sizes you're seeking as we can, per your email I don't always have them in the blends I offer... they'll be off shoots of the cane I pull, and if we're working "big" . I know...that's like saying "be patient"
