    What is the difference between a bacon bead and a ab bacon bead

    AB generally means that it has an aurora borealis finish, or kind of an irridescent rainbow finish, over the top of the color of the glass.

    As Wychic says the "ab" is the abbreviation for Aurora Borealis, which is a finish applied to beads that makes them shimmer. The AB finish makes me think of shot silk in a bead - in certain lights it's not the true colour of the bead, but a filtered version of that colour.  They are very beautiful beads and can really make an ordinary piece of jewellery really become more of a statement ice.

    I hope this helps.  The only thing that I was a bit thrown by was your use of the term bacon.  I wasn't sure what you meant by it, but I am not a complete expert in the variety of beads that are available.

    If you have anymore questions, please don't hesitate to ask and I will try to answer them as clearly as possible.
