Red is a color that I find hard to work with - I can never be sure which shade of red is going to come out of the kiln. It must have something to do with my flame and the oxygen/propane ratio. These beads have a lovely deep shade of red...and of course, they are dots.
Please stop by and check out my ETSY shop. I'm having a sale. With every regular bead purchased, you can get a bead/bead set of equal or lesser value for 1/2 price.
