Nice work, everyone!  Here are my eggplant beads.  Not a good photo, sorry, I took them outside, and the light is wrong (but better than when I used the flash indoors!).  The left hand one has frit on (can't remember which), the right hand one has SIS and dots of heffalump and (I think) aurae, and the bottom one is a floral BHB.

These are some of my eggplant beads

The 3 with frit on the left have yet to be annealed so are still 'eggplant coloured'. The others all lightened once annealed and the 'curdled' look become more pronounced. There seemed to be a huge variation of end colour, just look at the BHB on the right, he's much lighter than the rest (also will have been the one I worked longest). I don't dislike the effect but I loved the colour before annealing too.

I also had a little play with plunged dots and even achieved 2 beads similar enough to make a pair...

Thank you so much Jellybean for the generous parcel including some eggplant so I could have a play.

Thank you Lou. I see you won the other challenge, are you having the same dilemma as me? Tools or glass? "I'll be able to do xyz with one of those..." versus " Preeeeety colours!"
