Comments:

If you enlarge the picture above, you'll see that some beads are more deeply olive than other beads.  Also, some beads have pink right at the surface (with no olive glass over it).  Only a small number of beads have pink at the surface.  If you like those beads, please include a note with your order and I'll send them to you.  If you like the darker olive, include a note, and I'll those to you.

 

Incidentally, the colors in the picture may be a little too bright and saturated, but not by much.  When I toned down the olive color to a realistic level, it made the pink look washed out, so I had to compromise.  In short, the olive glass may not be as bright as the picture shows.  It is very common in pictures of 2-tone beads that one color will be reproduced accurately, and the other color will be a little off.
