A burst of colour!

But so difficult to photograph just right! The colours are a bit deeper in reality, the orange is stronger and the lilac is a bit deeper.The camera can't be compared to the eyes, so sensitive to every hue of colour!

Astrid, I love your beads, and hope that I one day will be able to make beads if only half as beautyful as yours :)

Many of the colours you use, I can't seem to find in my regular "glass store". Will you unveil which suppliers/brands/types of glass you use ?

Hello Trine, Thank you for the nice compliment:)
I use a lot of the Double Helix glass, and especially the Clio!
For the rest I use mostly Moretti glass and a little bit of CIM.
I think it all depends on how you combine or layer the colours to give the colours another hue.

:) Astrid

Das sind die Sommerfarben die wir im Moment in der Natur so vermissen.
Die Perle sieht super aus.
Liebe Grüße Heidi
