CiM 704: Peaches and Cream

 CiM 704 - Peaches and Cream. This is another opal glass - a translucent dark ivory or flesh tone. Well - flesh tone for some of us, anyway. Would be good for angels and mermaids, I think.

Beads were made from left to right, and you can see, the longer they were worked, cooled and reheated, the more they return to the original colour of the rod, but perhaps not quite as translucent.

I really like this, but as we know, I'm partial to the translucents and opals. I look forward to trying some sculptural stuff with it and see how it goes.
