Frit? Stringer? Boro? These terms plus many other are commonly found in descriptions of glass art and jewellery, and sometimes it can be puzzling trying to figure out what they all mean; every art has its own jargon and lingo which you learn to navigate to make sure you know exactly what you're buying. Well, the FHFteam has put together a couple of glossaries to de-mystify some of the common and less common words that pop up on Etsy, as well as some eye-candy from the FHFTeam to help illustrate what you can expect.
