Double Helix 2019 Test Batches

The International Society of Glass Beadmakers annual glass conference, the Gathering, is next week in Las Vegas, and I have the opportunity to play with the some of the test batches Double Helix Glassworks will be offering!

The ones I tested were EG-711, EG-714, ZL-691, WH-731 White, WO-733 Translucent White, and re-testing PL-699 which will be released as Phaeton.
