Kiln annealed and cleaned
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.
Prefer the satin finish look?
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.

The tumble-etching process is not reversible.
My tumble-etching opinon on these particular beads: The main beads would look greener, losing a lot of that blueness that comes from the cores.
