Moretti 419 Apricot

Another yummy, yummy streaky orange colour. Odd that I would be so enthusiastic about this colour set - I am soooo not an orange person, but I think, after this long snowy winter, some happy orange fruit colours are just the thing for bead happiness.

This rod has a dimpled texture (odd for Moretti - tend to see this more from Vetro) and you can see a variety of colour in the cross section. It works up nice and streaky, with the colours tending to more orange where the heat was applied last, and where there was more cooling, i.e. around the mandrel - the colours are yellowier. A very sunny colour!

The dotted beads are made with light ivory.
