Here is a picture of the devit over the whole of the bead:

Poor Sweetie, I know we all have had that frustration. I will tell you that I use my bead kiln if I use my torch. The time you put in is worth the cost of running the kiln. I haven't played with that newer glass color, but I have struggled with some colors that devitrify easily. I can tell you in my experience, that its all about the heat and using tools to get done quickly if you like a fussy color, and encasing it to protect it before working it further.

What torch are you using?
