Recycled glass bottles

Unfortunately, not all glass bottles can be recycled to make beautiful glass beads. I was excited to be given this beautiful pale green gin bottle the other day, however when I took the lid off I could see that the pale green was just a coating on the bottle. I went ahead and smashed it, just in case, however when I put it in the flame it started going brown and the colour completely disappeared by the time I had finished making the beads. Definitely worth a try, but sorry to see no pale green beads this morning!
