Effetre 297 Cocobean

 Effetre Cocobean - the rods I got of this are stringer skinny - so for a large bead, it might be faster to make the bead and encase instead of chasing these thin rods around.

The bead on the left, I struck, and the bead on the right, I left unstruck.

You can see the struck bead is definitely darker, and has a lot of colour variation too - it struck quite unevenly. It's a super nice bead - ranging from ash grey in places (not shown) to chestnut red.

I think it would be particularly interesting for sculptural beads, i.e. horse beads. Or maybe a cute little mousie.
