Effetre Lace Agate


Lace Agate - Woohoo! Look - right there in my notes! Woohoo! FAB.U.LUST

Oh, if you like streaky or ivory with lots of texture, or river rock - then the odds are - you will love this glass. I personally have ordered 5 pounds of it - but don't come whining to me when your measly quarter pound runs out - because I'm keeping it all. It's mine I tell you, mine, mine, mine!



Streaky, variegated rods, produce ...













fabulous, streaky, variegated beads! Lookit that bead! That is just the one glass - nothing extra added!

Oh, I am so excited about this one!

This is a brown and cream - with varying shades of brown, from a red brown to a grey brown.







And here are some spacers.






































Totally Awesome. I had to restrain myself - I was just happy to wind off spacers. I love the strong contrast in the colours. I could really wish for more glass like this - with the dramatic streakiness.

    Hey, first, love the blog. I look every day for updates!

    Second, from the pictures, this looks a lot like fossil? Can you tell a difference IRL between the two? Thanks!

  2. I did do fossil a while back. ;-)

    I think that the lace agate is more dramatic - stronger contrast from the light to the dark. If I can find those samples of fossil - I can compare head to head.

  3. Just like Kathy said - that pretty much looks like Fossil medium to me.
    Or - if it's more dramatic, then it would look pretty much like Fossil dark, right?
    I would love to see a side by side comparison with Fossil dk and Fossil medium. Unfortunately I can't find a vendor for Lace Agathe - can you recommend someone?.

  4. Very pretty, bet it would look gorgeous with some twists in it! I'm eyeing up 'sandstone' and 'sediment' - liking the look of them a LOT!

  5. Twists! great idea!

    I'll see if I have some fossil stashed around here someplace.

    In Canada, Nortel Mfg will have it - www.nortelglass.com,

    in the US - Frantz will have it for sure,

  6. Unfortunately Frantz doesn't have it. It was ordered, but the shipment arrived without the Lace Agathe. They're not sure when it's coming.

    Drat.
