CiM Chalcedony and Triton

Thanks to a comment from sassyglassdesigns on one of my previous posts, I've experimented with more glass colors to see how they react with Triton. Here I've tried a blue CiM glass called "Chalcedony" and I got a sea green color!Chalcedony and TritonTriton scrolls seem to fume base glasses with a yellowish color, so I think it's a matter of how nice the color looks with yellow added as to how the beads will turn out.

Here is a photo of some plain Chalcedony rods, so you can see the before and after color difference:Chalcedony glass rods

Thanks for the shout-out...the beads are gorgeous...a far cry from the original rod. Try Aurae with CIM Desert Pink...turns a really pretty caramel color...maybe that's the one I told you about. I have a pair called "caramel apple" in my Etsy shop.
