hey guys ive been nearing that point where im gunna need a new labret and since im finally gunna be reaching 8g i think ill use a different material then SS or Ti. my question is ive been looking online and was just woundering what were the exceptional and up glass brands out there? i know gorrila glass is good, but they only make things in 4g and down for labrets.
can glass jewelry break when eating at higher sizes? (6g+)

any input would be thankful.
 edit: spelling and added last sentence

Hey man I have and use single flare glass color fronts in all my laberts (lower and my philtrum). They don't have the "wing" style that you always see in Labret jewelry so it's just the plain circle. Just make sure they are the flat ones because I'm not sure if it's GG or Glasswear(I just use whichever company my studio has in stock at the moment) but they start to "dome" the color side and I can see that being uncomfortable/not good on gums. but that is just my experience and it's what always worked for me so far!

ok cool, yeah i was looking at glasswear earlier and they had some single flared stuff but just wasnt sure if it made a difference or not, and does anyone have a opinion on micro flare vs. o-ring

edit: as for the microflare vs. o-ring i havent tried microflare but i never wear an o-ring, it stays just fine for me

how is glass at the thinner sizes with eating? if you accidently bit the post whats the odds of that thing breaking? or are they pretty resilient?

ok, i was just curious because sometimes i bite my post when i eating but that is also because the post is a little long.
