Ooo, I am very happy with these.
The reddest beads are magenta Duracoat Delicas. While the opaque Duracoat beads are pretty eh to me, the silver-lined and transparent ones are really pretty. The thicker coating gives a depth to the shimmer that regular Delicas don’t have, and it also feels nice between my fingers – smooth, but not slick. When you spend hours at a time handling beads, this is not an insignificant thing.
I’m hoping the different finishes give a good impression of the variety of colors that can be in a twilight sky, especially if there are clouds involved.
