Summer Berry Cider Frit Lampwork Beads

All of these beads were crafted using the Summer Berry Cider frit blend by Glittering Prize. This blend features a combination of pink & purple transparent glass with some pink opaque pieces, adding depth and complexity to the final result. The choice of base color significantly influenced the outcome: when applied over white, pink, and purple bases, the beads radiated a brighter and more lively pink palette. Conversely, when paired with greens, blues, and yellows, the frit blend revealed warm peach and brown tones, creating a rich and earthy aesthetic.

Sunset Embers Lampwork Bead Set

This turned out to be such a pretty set of lampwork beads. It look several extra days to pick the right color combination. Some of the beads I selected had too much green or gray and so it took a few extra days to finally get the right color combination. This is definitely a winning combination.

Double Helix Pink Glass

Last week, my new Double Helix light pink glass colors arrived. The transparent one is a test batch BGX-894 and the opaque is Oracle Pink Pastel. These colors are technical colors and are not striking or reducing. These colors did not disappoint. They melted very nicely as expected when using Double Helix glass. There was no bubbling and shocking when making these beads. Really just a no fuss pink which is not usually the case with Effetre and CIM pinks.
