As a continuation of yesterday's post, I found some photos that illustrate some of the kinds of finishes that I'd like to see in the colors that I posted. I love the somewhat translucent "milky" look of some of these beads. They're obviously available somewhere because someone made these pieces of jewelry with them.
I just bought the beads below on Small Business Saturday. They're just plain opaque glass but I love the clear, clean color and they're a very pretty blue that I'd never seen anywhere before. Obviously I had to buy them. They're 3mm fire polished beads and unfortunately that was the only size they had in that color.
