21 Reasons Why the English Language is Hard to Learn

There have been a lot of discussion on grammar and the English language lately which prompted me to search for this email I received years ago. I wish I knew who the original author of this was so I could give proper credit to him/her.

Latest Double Helix Test Batches CE, CL, and KA Series

To say that I am in love is to put it mildly. Just when I thought Ekho was the BESTEST silver glass ever made, Double Helix released its Aether Clear (the best clear EVER made) and along with it, a bunch of odd/test batches based on its NE323 and NE325 color shifting series.

I plan on capping and coring these for our Ginormous BHBs series but ran out of 1/2" sterling silver discs! These will not be on our Etsy store until after they have been capped and cored but we just can't wait to share with you the glass!

These are Pandora size spacers still need to be cored. From left to right: CE-352, CE-352G, CL-359, CL-360, CL-361, KA-356, and KA-357

Latest Double Helix Test Batches CE-352 and CE-352G

Just like their predecessor NE325, I tend to get mostly golden yellows from this CE series.

CE-352 – blue/purple color shifting glass with a strong luster

CE-352G - green/pink color shifting glass with a strong luster

Latest Double Helix Test Batches CL-359, CL-360, CL-361

I find the CL series to be very similar - all gorgeous!

– blue green/pink purple color shifting glass. Strong luster can transmit ruby tones. Slowest self striking in the CL series

CL-360 – blue gree/pink purple color shifting glass. Strong luster can transmit ruby tones. Self striking.

CL-361 - blue gree/pink purple color shifting glass. Strong luster can transmit ruby tones. Fastest self striking in the CL series.

Latest Double Helix Test Batches KA-356 and KA-357

KA-356 – opaque green/pink color shifting glass

Reduce slightly, encased in Aether Clear

Reduce heavily, encased in Aether Clear

Strike, reduce slightly, encased in Aether Clear

KA-357 - light green/orange pink color shifting glass

One more pink and the other more orange . . . will play more to find out how to obtain each!
