Make 'n' Tell Challenge Day 10: Cranberries
For my next challenge, I decided to make some beads with my most challenging glass colour....the colour red. I don't make many red beads. I don't wear much red, but I do love red shoes and red lipstick! In the world of glass, red is one of the more difficult colours to work with. It is hard to see when layering with other colours in a hot flame as it appears black when cooling from molten orange back to solid. And it "burns" easily, that is, the red colour darkens with prolonged heating and can look dirty. I'm happy with how this set turned out, they're simple but remind me of cranberries! Now I have to decide what to do with them!
