Comments:

Important:  The previous several batches of these beads had such a heavy bronze coating that they looked mostly bronze; you could only see that they were a translucent red underneath if you held them up to the light.  The new batch is clearly a red bead with a bronze coating, with the red being very prominent.  It's a different look, and I think some people will prefer the new batch and some people will prefer the old batch.  I should do a new picture, but taking pictures is so much work, so I am writing this note instead.
