Venetian Bittersweet 5 Opaque Glass Bead: Size 11/0
Size 11 bittersweet or dark coral color glass seed bead with an opaque finish.
What a beautiful old color! At first it reads red, then maybe red-orange and then resolves into a dark coral. The "bittersweet" moniker came from the Crayola Crayon color, which is what was used to sort out the Italian beads initially. This is the larger and brighter of the two bittersweet colors that we carry marked as 11/0; the finish is also more transluscent, or "greasy". This is an imprecise hue that makes it easy to combine with other old colors.
Sold: 1 ounce package.
