Tumble-etching is available for these beads at no extra cost.
If you like, I can tumble-etch these beads to a soft, satin finish. This process will dull the glass, making any transparent parts appear frosted and translucent.
Please click here to see examples of my tumble-etched beads.
The tumble-etching process is not reversible.
Note: Although I have captured the beads' colours as best as I can, different screen and monitor settings vary and as such the colours of the beads may appear slightly different in real life than they do on your computer or device. In particular, Apple devices tend to ramp up the reds so please bear this in mind when viewing beads that are red, pink, purple etc.
