Microwave kiln! So cool. I love the look of fused glass (and your three pieces that worked look lovely), but I never thought it was accessible to me. Hm... another thing to add to my potential over-the-border craft shopping wishlist. (No Hobby Lobby here in Canada...)

You can order them online too - Delphi sells them. I think that MicroFusion is a Canadian manufacturer so they might be even easier to get.

Micro kilns are fun but tricky. You can only do small pieces because they don't have any annealing ability which is important with larger pieces.
I sometimes use mine to get an idea of how things will look before doing a larger fire in my big kiln.
You can get lots of glass bits and scraps on eBay which is great for making jewelry inexpensively.
