CiM Lady bug reminds me very much of CiM Bing - which is one of my favourite reds. It is a vibrant red - technically - I think it is a transparent, which means it is stiffer than an opaque, but you'd have to put it over clear to get it to function as a transparent.
It has, delightfully - no trace of brown or liveriness - which is the thing that makes me happy in a red. This is a self-coloured spacer.
The top mandrel of beads has a clear overwrap.
This is what a red should be - vibrant and pure in colour. This is a winner.
