Milky Way SNO 605

Milky Way (SNO 605). In the rod and unannealed this is a translucent ice blue, while after annealing it is a slightly translucent cool white.

Heat and working time can affect how opaque it becomes, but I haven't managed to keep it particularly translucent in these beads.

Here it is plain and reduced. The reduced bead has gone a pale yellowish ivory colour. Incidentally, this beehive shape seems to be what I get if I use a small mandrel in the ribbed round shape in Pegasus Lampwork Tools' BHB beadshaper! I didn't fill the width and got beehives both times, which is fun.

This bead is the most translucent-looking of the batch. It has CiM tuxedo stringer and Effetre white dots at the top, which are only just visible. The tuxedo is noticeably blue-based on this bead, particularly where it has spread a little. (This shows up a little more in person).
