Rubies Are Red

As I look over the items in my shop, I have become aware that I am a bit deficient in the color RED.  I attribute part of this problem to the time of year--namely, that Spring is here (or will be soon, I hope) and the colors of spring are blue, green, yellow, and pink.  

Another part of the problem is that I only have a couple of RED rods left and I haven't placed another glass order yet since I'm working to get taxes prepared and applications to art festivals done.

However, I cannot allow my low reserves of RED to allow the colors of beads in my shop slip too far into the cool color scale.  So, may I present to you  "Rubies Are Red"?

This HOT little focal sports lots of this elusive color and just shines in the light.  Sure to FIRE your imagination, the deep, transparent RED dots encompass this focal bead.  It reminds me a bit of a jewel encrusted piece of jewelry such as a Faberge' Egg.

Then, of course, there are those lovely shoes of Dorothy's in "The Wizard Of Oz" which also have a bit of RED on them too.

Well, whatever this bead reminds me of, really doesn't matter.  The only question is, "What does this bead remind you of?"

It'll be in my Etsy shop in the morning.  Please come a take a look and see more pictures of this little gem.

Have to say I don't do a lot of red either. Sometimes in conjunction with black (i did get those pretty Bordello rods...), but I think that like orange and red, either you like it or you don't. Maybe I need to rethink???

Hi Formfire.

Red, and other striking colors, do take some getting used to when working the in the flame. Once you get the hang of it though, they can really stunning.

Red is a VERY popular color, so I'd say keep practicing with them and you'll eventually get the hang of it.

Definitely keep playing with it, but don't stress out. You will get it one day as you get more experience with the glass.

If you have any questions, just let me know.
