'Purple Potpourri'

Purple Lampwork Glass BeadsAs the name suggests, this is an assortment of purple beads. They're all encased so they have a wonderful depth to them.

Purple Lampwork Glass BeadsUs lampworkers are really spoilt for choice when it comes to purple glass. There are so many shades of it to choose from and a load more can be created by mixing and layering colours. The palest pinky-purple and the deeper, more amethyst pink-purple here in this set are the exact same glass. I just layered it over different base colours and in varying thicknesses to get two different shades. Glassy magic!
