newbie to glass jewelry

Hi there, I've been a glass caster making pretty good size castings but now I am interested in casting some small pendant size pieces, 1-1- 1/2" in diameter and have no clue where to look for a casting/fusing schedule for doing so. Any help anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated!
