New Peacock Glass

Post by Beady-Eyed on Sun Jan 28, 2018 1:03 am

I'm finding the new Prehnite Peacock glass a little dark and hard to combine.  I seem to be a very picky person.  I don't like them with bluegreens or blues.  They're very hard to photograph (again they look dark & you can't see details) unless you get in close.



I think I like this version better with some yellower greens mixed in:

Very lovely creation Love I have mine on a mini combo for now. I have been trying to combine it with the green spring kit from years ago and it looks nice, but it looks nicer without it Smile It still is a very lovely bead.

Lovely-the ones I have seen on Fb have used darker blues and greens I think. I wonder how they would look with the dark blue engraved beads and maybe cliffs from Rocky beach?

I agree re. the second version. Does the bead have a lot of that brownish Terracotta in?

I think your combo and the bead look beautiful! That is a new one to me, I don't think I've seen it before.

I must admit I'm not that taken with Prehnite Peacock as a design: the swirling shapes are lovely, but I really dislike the inclusion of terracotta alongside green and blue. It's just a matter of personal preference, but that took it from 'must buy' to 'that won't go with anything I have'. Your combination with gold and copper colours accommodates it beautifully though -it makes me think of sunbeams piercing the forest canopy.

I prefer the second version since the copper beads take up the teracotta in the Peacock. However, so far I also decided it cannot move in, as I am cautious with multi-colour beads. They are very difficult to comine... and I am mor the single-colour person
