  • Description

Ltd Run colours are manufactured in extremely small quantities and might not be repeated again so the advice is always to buy as much as you can if you like it.

Carnival is described as a "a light blue transparent base with orange,yellow, green and white streamers"

Testers reported

"The hollow focal bead and small barrel beads were capped on each end with Double Helix Aurae silver glass. Each bead was reduced to bring out the metallic shine. The spacer beads are pure Carnival glass. Carnival is elegant in my opinion and would be would be beautiful on a simple silver chain." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"The base glass is a cross between grey and medium blue, almost antique looking. I preheated this rod to avoid any shockiness. This glass wasn’t stiff but didn’t melt like butter - more of something in-between these two. I worked these on fairly small beads [15mm] and you can see the streamers inside. Carnival can produce both a subtle or striking look depending on the size of the beads and how the randomness of the colour is applied and worked. Either way on small or large beads this colour will either give you a subtle look [smaller beads] or more of a celebration style in bigger beads with layers of glass built up. I do feel that the effect of this glass would be more suited to a larger bead that allows for many layers of glass with a carefree/freehand design to really showcase the streamers inside. Worked great with silver glass. No bubbling or any issues when working the glass in the flame and when heating and cooling on repeat."
