Effetre green dreemz
1 is plain, 2 is encased over clear, with the streaks showing nicely. 3 is encased with clear, and the lightening of the color allowed the streaks to show a little, but I do like 4 over white better. I didn't realize that the streaks were actually dark blue in green transparent. You can just about catch this effect on the left side of the bead. 5 is with ivory and I'm happy to see it didn't do anything ugly. 6 is with copper green and there is a very slight lightening of the copper green where it touches the transparent. 7 is a disappointment. The bead has a core of white, encased in green dreemz, triton decoration, reduced (too much) and encased again in clear. I had to try it. The last bead is essentially the same one without the encasement. I like it better. Still, this is a bit of lily gilding. I think the best bead of the set is plain, over white, just the combination of the promo picture. I wonder what it looks like over, say a very pale blue of yellow?
