Everyone kept saying to me - "oh - that looks like Apple Blush" - and yes - it does share a resemblance to Apple Blush - and is one down in the numbering system Butternut Lime is certainly a shock when it comes out of the kiln!
The wild-lime-green rod strikes up to much more of an orangey colour than I expected.
You can see from the pressed patterns and the sides of the beads that it can stay bright green - or that it can blush to shades of yellow and orange where it it re-heated. Truly - a combo of lime and butternut squash colours.
The spiral beads are made in a bead press - which seems to work very nicely with the multi-colour nature of the glass.
