I bought quarter of a kilo of odd-lot Vetrofond glass about five years ago. It is the palest transparent yellow but the rods are about 12mm diameter which makes it awkward to work with.
These 'Champagne' beads are the last of that glass. I've etched the beads to a velvety finish and I've included some shimmery spacers. The set is for sale in the usual place along with a few other sets.
