Ok, here are my first four beads I made with the light pandora I got at the gathering. Please excuse the really bad pictures and the super bad press job with the shell press (blech).

The first two beads are cased with clear. First one with two wraps side by side and you can see a little green/blue peaking out between the clear. The second one just had a stripe down the middle. Interestingly the large greenish yellow bead was made on the same mandrel as the bead next to it, but is not cased. It was garaged and annealed the same amount of time. This bead, when it went into the kiln, was more opaque and kinda mossy looking. These first three beads were the first I made that day and garaged for about 4 hours at 960. The shell bead was the very last bead I made that day (it is not cased) and not garaged at all. I turned on my kiln cycle right after popping it in the kiln. You can see it is a mix between the really purple and the green/yellow bead.

Jed and Julie, you know I love your glass and this is no exception, what fun!

I hope this glass is for sale before I return to work in Sept.! I am crossing my fingers it won't sell out before I get off work.

Those beads are beautiful Lara!

OHHHHHH I'm loving this stuff. Here is my latest from the Pandora Light (same as above). These turned out very purple. I'm just loving this purple color. Thanks for the cool color Jed and Julie.

The set is light pandora over clear with clear stripes or dots (plus two with the pandora on amythist cased with clear)

The focal is light pandora over V. light ivory.

Oh the light is so pretty. I got some dark Pandora yesterday at Frantz and Jed kindly gave me a huge sample rod of Pandora. I made 6 beads out of the one rod. A goddess and 5 other focal beads.



It's beautiful. I'm not going to be able to sleep tonight waiting to check the kiln tomorrow morning.

Wow, wow, wow...does anyone know when we get a chance to buy some? (Haven't checked around yet - it may be out there already....)

Thanks everyone, but it's really the glass. I did NOTHING to it but make the bead and put it in the kiln at 960 for about 4 hours and that's how it came out. I didn't even try to strike it, it just did it all by it's self.

Did you use the light or the regular pandora?

It's the regular. I have some of the dark, but I haven't tried it yet.

Thanks Kevan, I suspected that would be your answer, but thought I would ask. I have gotten surprising results from some DH colors without knowing how I got them too.

Hmmm, I have the light, the odd lot and the dark. I'm wondering if the regular gets more of the oranges. Jed, Julie? Any idea?
