I've used two transparent blue bases, one looks lavender blue in artificial light, the other looks pale blue. I've done a raised surface design in a Double Helix glass that reacts with a golden amber finish. You'll have 13 beads- 3 feathered conches, a starfish, a scallop, an urchin, 2 disks, 3 dotted spacers and 2 seaweed tag spacers. I used 1/16 mandrels. This is a very feminine and glittery beach themed set.
