Hi,

I bought these beads because I love the colour combination and was wondering if you know what colours have been used?

There are so many different shades of colours and also I have to factor in the different makes of glass that I am totally confused Huh

Can you please help?

Thank you,

Sam.

Very pretty beads. The words Vetrofond odds keep jumping into my head, but I could well be wrong. I would guess at Gaia for the blueygreen silver glass.

Have you asked the maker if she will tell you?

Possibly effected coral, dark chocolate and apricot yellow for starters.  Are you going to flame off? if so take the beads and compare.  I guarantee everyone near you will try to help!!!

Don't think these are borosilicate. It looks like Effetre Coral. There is quite a lot of difference in batches of Coral. In fact - some of the corals that they get in the States are lovely and we don't get them here. There was one batch of Coral which turned out to be a lovely orange and was sold as "tequila sunrise" for a while. Coral gets my vote as it's nice and opaque.

yup Corel, light red, dark brown, red brown...pastel yellow, possible some middle red in there two juding on the bleeding and I have no idea what the bluey one is.  She does make fantastic beads.

What I recommend is that you make some spacer beads in every colour of glass that you own (label them!) and this will help you when trying to figure out what colours other people are using

Make more then one and etch one of them.  some colours just ping when they are etched.

I think the bluish colour might be a silver glass -looks as if the surface has a metallic sheen and, if you enlarge the pic, there's a lot of reaction around the dots.

If you are coming to FO, please bring them with you - they are very pretty and we'd all have a great time playing "match the glass"  Grin

Actually, looking again at the picture that bluey-green colour might be copper green, as there's no fuming around the colours which would suggest that it is a normal glass rather than a silver glass. Also, copper green does go that type of shiny in the kiln.
