An old favourite has been given a make over to make it stay
translucent! This melted beautifully with no pre-heating required.
In the rod they are similar, but the original version
is more opaque, and the difference becomes more apparent the more you work it.
In the smaller beads (12mm) they are very similar, but work the original
one to 14mm and add some facets and this becomes a milky opaque with
The new version layers over foam and stays translucent
allowing the white to gently shine through.
I have no doubt that people will love this new feature, but
lampworkers and stockists will need to label any of the original stock so that
you know which is which! 😁
