Streaky Denim - Denim seems to be one of the "in" colours these days - to whit - Swarovski's big roll-out of their new colour - Denim Blue.
This particular take on Denim is streaky blue and purple in the unworked rod - but more purple and blue in the finished bead.
This is the unworked rod.
More dramatic results than the Striped Pink - possibly because the streaks run the length of the rod, instead of it being, essentially a cored cane. Not sure how I feel about the metallic hue though.
