Z-99 Frit Beads

I am having SO much fun making beads with this fabulous, and rare, Z-99 glass frit which is no longer in production. It’s vibrant purple, periwinkle and violet colors have me mesmerized!

When it’s gone, it’s gone – so I’m making the most of my time with it while it lasts. 😉

Color Changing Alexandrite Glass

Sweet Dreams bead collection

This very special glass gets its name from the gemstone that has the same unique characteristic. Both have a tendency to change color right before your eyes depending on the lighting conditions.

This Italian imported glass can shift from a light lavender to a pale violet when taken from natural/incandescent light to florescent light.

Sweet Dreams focal bead

As a bonus, Alexandrite glass will also fume beautifully when it comes in contact with silver glass.This creates a rich, deep honey color on the surface.

This set and focal both begin with a base of magical Alexandrite glass.
