A striking transparent orange.




"Definitely living up to its name, looks just like goldfish orange. I definitely prefer Goldfish over Clockwork. In my opinion, Goldfish works better than Clockwork for that Hot Pink colour we all know and love. It is a striking colour which gives variety if you wanted to make a set of beads in an ombre design." – Juliette Mullett

"Goldfish is a beautiful striking orange and very easy to strike."

"These are Firedragon [red transparent] and Goldfish [orange transparent]. I was not as successful with Goldfish. It may be a product of how I work on my Lynx torch, but I had a hard time getting it to strike consistently. You can see it as compared with Clockwork, orange spacer on the left and Goldfish, orange spacer on the right. The tone of the Goldfish was very similar to Clockwork."

"Goldfish seems like Orange Crush. Nice orange!"

"Goldfish is a transparent deep orange that reminds me of neat Aperol, and it’s lovely. It’s a striking glass, meaning that it requires some cooling and reheating in order to bring out its colour. The rod is already orange [some striking colours don’t look anything like their ‘finished’ colour, or are much paler] but I managed to make it a tad darker orange during the strike. The glass melts really smoothly and I had no bubbling or shocking. To get a nice even, uncloudy strike you need to heat the bead until it is uniformly transparent – no streaks, wisps or foggy bits – and then let it cool outside the flame for a bit. At this point I reintroduced it to the flame and added the Effetre White 204 scrolls and just working in the gentle top part of the flame was enough for the strike to occur without me even trying. If you’re keeping the glass undecorated, just carefully reheat it in the top half of the torch flame until the colour blooms." Read more at Laura's blog.
