Effetre 526 Sky Blue Opalino

No idea how long I  have  had this package of Effetre 526 Sky Blue Opalino. Rather a long time, I suspect. It comes out very pale, like glacial icy blue white. I think that at one point I would have been rather disappointed with this colour, but now I really like the subtlety of it. The more you try to get more light on it to emphasize its translucency, the whiter it looks. When it's not backlit it looks pale blue and when you put a lot of light behind it it looks like whiteish blue.

Double Helix RX-783

RX-783, from #doublehelixglass This is a technical glass that comes as a transparent mid-sapphire blue, and goes transparent purple as you work it, leaving some streaking of the blue, depending on how you work it.
Some of the beads are a core of Zephyr,  some are encased with Zephyr.
Very, very pretty.
