    I love red too. No one has given me a clear answer as to what Picasso means when applied to beads. This pick does some clarification. Splotches over the color? I like your pick.

    I love the cranberry red of this pick. I too am baffled by the “Picasso” label of the bead treatment, Melody.

    Here’s one thing I found about picasso:
    A luster coating that appears more speckled and spotty; giving beads a natural, earthy appearance. The color can vary from light yellow to dark brown with underlying color variations. Some base bead colors, such as opaque beige, blue, or white allow the picasso finish to take on a raku pottery look.

    Your pick is lovely. Its one of my favorite shades of red. I did more research and found that there is a gemstone call Picasso Jasper:

    Named after the painter Pablo Picasso, this unique gemstone is found in the state of Utah in the United States. The gemstone has an abstract, modernistic look with its wide streaks of black, grey and occasional red.

    Beautiful pick–and hopefully POD-worthy. Red Picasso Czech beads are a huge favorite of mine, especially when they’re table-cut or etched–I have several different styles in my stash. And thanks, Nancy, for the definition. I sort of suspected the coating had something to do with the name, but wasn’t sure.
