New Rustic Beads

New sets of beads. I love the faceted shape as it's a little larger that I usually make. Got lots of great colors. Copper green was the base in most. Sky blue and opal yellow with z-99 special rose and two other reduction powder and frit make up these cuties. I will tumble etch today and show pictures after. Would love to hear your feedback on the etching.
