Believe it or not.....
...these are all classified as the same color, "coral."
Glass is the same as dye lots in other arts, fabrics, seed beads, etc. The "dye lot" phenomenon causes hoarding among glass beadmakers - wanting to make sure you have enough of that color so you don't run out. But there's a down side to hoarding, end of the year inventory otherwise known as counting all of the extra pounds of glass you've bought.
With that in mind, I'm going to start selling off some of my extra glass. I really really really don't want to count some 6,000 rods of glass again this December.
But first, I've got that Open Studio coming up this Sunday, better get back to work putting price tags on my beads!
