Speckled Seeds

Soon to be a necklace.

A big set of small beads.

Very simple.
'Opalino Yellow' glass - not the expensive 'Opal Yellow' just the original Effetre classic.

The Opalino glass colors are some of my favorites - make sure you work them with lots of oxygen or you can get soot trails.

The spots are Double Helix iridescent 'Triton' frit.
Some have only one or two spots and some have many, some I put thru a reducing flame at the end, some I did not. I wanted lots of similar beads, but nothing identical.

Yes, all those butter yellow to dark honey color variations are from the same color glass.
I love how some of them get all toasty and some stay pale.
