I love making these new style beads, and seeing just what the "view" turns out to be when they come out of the kiln is always a surprise. The lime green ones at the top were made with a very rare glass called "Parrot green", which is no longer being made. I still have enough to make perhaps one more set. they also contain a rare purple glass powder that is also no longer being made.
The second set reminds me of the old riddle "What is black and white, but *red* all over?" - a newspaper!!
In the 3rd and 4th sets I really like how the black contrasts with the multi coloured center view.
These beads can be found in my Etsy shop.
