Effetre 227 Caribbean Sea - Old batch vs New Batch

 Caribbean Sea is a layered colour, a transparent core with an opaque outer layer. The result is a lovely, streaky look when worked. The more you work it, the better it looks.

The new batch is a little different, so I tried them side by side. One end of the bead is the old batch, and one end is the new, BUT, I'm sorry, I lost track of which was which.

But they are both really pretty. If you love blues and greens, you'll love this glass - whichever batch you get! 


  1. Love the color and the bead style - the transparent Murrini is great!

  2. Thanks!

    The pattern is actually a brass stamp - way easier than a Murrini!
