    Well... okay!

    Here they are:


    Close up on the colors:

    From left to right (all are shorts/ 5" except for the aquapearl, which is a medium/ 6"):
    Vineyard, Alabaster, Tortoise, Santos Zebra, Carnival, Agatewood, Tahitian Jadewood, Green-Black Aquapearl.

    I have action shots of all of them, but I'll just do my favorites. If anyone wants to see a particular one in hair, just let me know!
    Agatewood:
    Vineyard:
    Tahitian Jadewood:

    (If my hair looks signifigantly different in volume in the action shots, it's because only one has been taken in the past month. The other two are several months old, at least).

    Well done Chloeishere! I never realized vinyard has that bright green in the mix. (Adds to wishlist). The tahitian jade really stands out in your hair. Neat!

    chloeishere it could be the photo, though the other colours look the same but your second one doesn't look like the alabaster on ketylos webpage? I can't find a ketylo that's blue and black on the page though? You have a pretty collection though

    ETA: Maybe it darkened with age?

    Not Chloe, but I'm going to guess it is actually an indigo royalwood ketylo. Indigo dymondwood is not blue/black but blue and extremely dark navy. If you're not in the sun you may as well call it blue/black though.

    It's not actually blue and black. It's blue and an extremely dark green! You can see if you look carefully at the dark stripes in the close-up shot. It is, however, technically an alabaster stick, I swear!
    Unfortunately, it appears that my alabaster stick (and actually, the vineyard stick as well) somehow was dyed REALLY dark on the green. Not exactly what I wanted, but there's no way to know about those variations, sometimes. It's probably one of the reasons I don't consider it one of my favorites-- it just looks dark unless it's directly in bright light.

    Thanks for you answers It really has come through as dark, which is why I had to ask.

    Another photo with the same sticks plus an indigo stick and an alabaster one as well. (probably showing why I was asking about the alabaster colours)

    I only have three sets . . . and for some reason I can only find one stick out of each pair! I will try to post pics later in the day.

    July 06 : 21-30 inches, layered . . . Dec 09: 36 inches, still fighting the taper.
