So is that Omen hollow in the center? That's pretty badass, plus it'd be easy to loop it around the purge for HANDY STORAGE

nice

o o o, idea, not sure if you can accomplish it from torch working but 2 tubes twisted (different colors) around each other coming to one tube. i really dont know if you can do it easily but just had the idea

i like the idea of the omen but im not sure how the big hole in the center will work out when you are using it, just might get cumbersome but at the same time like was said it could be used to just hang it too so idk.

Yeah, you could do twisted tube work by blowing glass. It's super flexible in terms what what you can do. I already had ideas of twisting two or more tubes to form a design. Just need to sketch it out. I'm stoked by hearing all these positive responses.

love em all! sign me up man. id probably go with a genie, maybe an omen later

twisting would be awesome too..combine twisted with the omen and im envisioning an infinite sign shape - kinda flat and subtle, or rounded for a more 3 dimensional idea.

I think bending any of these along the Z axis would make it even better!

It'd be difficult to get some of the sharp edges, and very intricate; But I think they can probably be made. I'll throw up some more designs soon.

i second the difficulty of the shapes, sweet shapes but they would be better to be turned out of plastic of some sort. glass can get hard edges but its hard to do free hand and small

haha slow down everyone. This is exciting for TDE and myself as well, we'll get some more designs in and try to fill peoples needs and wants. Plenty more designs are coming in. Hopefully my drawing will improve in the process haha. Love the ideas you guys have had, I'll try to meet the need for people. I really want to get an idea of what people are looking for. We're really looking for designs that are cost efficient to produce, and decorative.

I would get the simplistic design over the omen, but if the gap in the omen was thinner or the double helix thing could be worked id be in for that, im not sure why, but the omen seems like a fragile design. I also don't know how id hold it properly...maybe id get it when I saw it though..
