:) Welcome aboard! anasazistudios!
Well, at first sight.......I love your colors!.....and the beads look edibal (sp?)....i would like to eat them! This is a good thing.
I commend you for working with HOT GLASS! I am afraid of fire.
There is a forum here at WC that specifically adresses GLASS. Perhaps you can get a more educated response there.

This is a great concept and the color choices are generally good for a Mexican fiesta flare on the beads. The silver spacers are also a great choice.
I actually love the solid color beads best. They have great shape and are vibrant. I know that sounds so boring, but those solids are just YUMMY!
I think the translucent beads with the lime color are nice, but don't really work for me in the set. The pattern is good, but I'm just thinking that the lemony green isn't working. Maybe try it with the same translucent green that you've used in those top beads?
The other thing I am not certain about is the striped bead with solid color wrapped at the ends. The pattern makes them look off center. I'm not certain if that's the look you want or not. It's most apparent on the red striped bead on the right side. Just my opinion, but I'd rather see either balanced solid color on the ends or only striped or even something like that great red and green swirled bead on the right.
I just love those solids though. They are definitely fiesta!
