A garnet red.




"I wanted to see what happened if I got it so hot that it went clear. And this is the lovely little jewel that resulted. I got it drippy hot, completely clear, wound off the bead, and watched it cool and go red before my eyes without striking. . . . Later I got some grey streaks and this time - spent rather a lot of time trying to re-heat them and strike them out. Fortunately, that reduced them significantly - although I won't say they are completely gone." Read more at DragonJools blog. – Dwyn Tomlinson

"Garnet is a dark, berry-stained red. The glass easily strikes with little effort. The rich color blooms into a saturated blood red." Read more at Heather's blog.

"The two beads on the left were melted to clear before I made the beads. The ones on the right were melted just enough to wrap them on the mandrel. I love the ones on the right."
