What type of light/lamp is best to use for beading that omits the

least heat and shows the right color of the beads?

Cannot beat an Ott light for seeing the colors truely- and it is a

flourescent bulb, so no heat that I can detect. Thunderbird Supply has

a copy-cat that is cheaper, but I cannot attest to the trud

light/heat, but I bet they would talk to you about it.

I am glad that I bought my Ott from Office Depot, before all the

beaders/crafters got on that bandwagon. Mine is smaller than the

portables, because it doesn't have the silly handle or the swivel

base, so it fits neatly into a file case from Walmart, on top of bead

boxes, and it was only $30. Of course, that was in 1990! I am using

the original bulb, and it has travelled on planes with me, and to many

a bead retreat, so they are tough and worth every penny they charge

nowadays.
