Here is a pic of my husband and I. I started off collecting handmades, but now I buy what "speaks" to me at the time. I appreciate all kinds of marbles. He loves Vitro helmets and contemporaries, and is now leaning toward Pelts...my marble habit has rubbed off on him I'm afraid.

My name is Ruth, and I lean toward machine made.

Here is a picture of my new favorite find; a Ravenswood found in a bowl of fifty cent marbles in Connecticut, where I was visiting my parents recently. It is just 17/16" In the Archives there is a great set of photos with commentary from Alan about Ravenswoods, that includes marbles like this, but this example trumps those. I love it.

My name is JESSE B.

I'm obbssessed with Hot Wheels, Marbles , and the hunt for treasure that I'm convinced I will find one day. 😊

I love nature, physics, music, classic muscle cars, and researching anything jbut itust for the sake of knowing more. Besides collecting marbles my hobbies include : surfing the web, window shopping on eBay, researching collectible items and their values, taking artsy pics with my phone and spending way too much time editing them, watching TV - ie: History channel, Discovery channel, A&E, and Antiques Roadshow, riding bmx bikes, making mixes on my virtual turntables, making my own house music and break beats, eating, trying to be a good person, and anything I can work with my hands like cars, computers, bikes, or even little things, basically anything that can be restored.

I'm 35 going on 13 and I believe anything is possible and that we all manifest our own destiny.

Did I mention I LOVE MARBLES? :-) I would say Akro, Peltier & Mark Matthews marbles seem to catch my eye the most.

I'm really glad I found the Marble Connection.
