Yes, these two beads are made from the exact same turquoise color formula. yet notice how different they look from each other.
The scribing on the left is embellished with a blue/gold pearl acrylic paint. The scribing on the bead on the right has been embellished with bronze pearl ex. Also the bead caps are made with a faux ivory color on that one.
I am always amazed at how colors react with one another. It is a constant and mesmerizing study and one I never tire of.
