Default Guess the combination...

I've been making icicles for christmas. Lots of icicles. I keep changing up the color combo's and ran across this, so I made it into pandora beads for fun.

They're hard to photograph, I'm not very skilled with the whole good pictures of reduction glasses. They look like aurae beads.

Here you go

(each one has slightly more reduction from left to right), and for two hints

-bullseye
-Three types of glass used in each bead. (the dot colors don't matter)

That's darn close Two right, but not mixed. Just layered

okay then amber luster over sunset coral over a base of something - I can't see the base color very well.

Close enough. I should have made you ineligible, squid. Too, too quick

white base
either sunset coral or light sunset coral
amber luster

clear, coral, or mist dots, but they don't show up so well.

sorry - sorry

they are gorgeous! The layer of amber luster must be really thin to get so much of the coral color showing.

Amber luster is really soft, it flows over other colors very easily to get a thin, thin layer.

To get the best lusters, you need the following

-warm base bead
-change to reducing flame where the flame is soft and fluffy and there's just a small needle of yellow sticking up ~3 inches.
-waft into flame
-remove
-turn
-waft again.

I find that I get over-reduced areas if I just twirl it in the flame.

I'll try to get pictures later.
