Nice to look at but at that price definitely not worth it IMO.

I gather the silver salts used are extortionately expensive, but you also have to take into consideration the costs of running the business, paying staff and the number of years of experience Tim has - he is after all, one of the very top glassmakers in europe and considerably more skilled than professional footballers or pop stars you'd have to pay a fortune to hire to do something for you.
You're obviously all used to buying second hand stuff which is cheap and does not take into consideration the cost of production! >:D
Cheers, Sue (M)

Three Wise Women would have asked for directions, arrived on time, delivered the baby, cleaned the stables and made a casserole...

And there WOULD have been peace on earth.

Put that way, I suppose it is worth its money (and more) and I truly understand why a a person would desire it -- But it's still shocking for me to think that a person might have that much money to spare. 

Maybe one day I will too  ;D

There are a lot of very wealthy folk "out there" Anik, who can waste far larger sums of cash on loads of non-essential nonsense. I imagine the hire of a stretch limo and chauffeur for an evening might be about the same as a Tim crizzle stone!

And some highly non-wealthy people as well...  If I'd stop smoking for half a year, I'd be able to get myself a very nice crizzle stone.  :pb:

Try buying an original painting or sculpture from an equally well known and respected artist for the same price. Glass can be 'cheap' in comparison, especially if you take account of the cost of production.
