Last week, I talked about “standard” colours in Czech-made firepolish and pressed glass. Maybe “classic” would have been a better term – but they were the colours that you find in most lines of glass beads.
These following colours are what I think of as the “2nd string” of colours, they add more colours and expand the colour palette and options but are pretty common and easy to find.
Note the absence of a true pinky-pink and a blue purple. Which is why we also get really excited when we find a source of these! Pink, purple and brown glass is made with gold – which is why they tend to be more expensive! Even more so with this last year’s skyrocketing price of gold!
