Messy testing - Avonlea, Andrew and Adriatic ltd run

A collection of green and blue beads from me today, three more colours from the May 2020 release of new glass from CiM

These flower buds are made with a core of Avonlea ltd run with Effetre light aqua petals over the top. It's a  very striking combination.


Avonlea is a bright happy grass green with a barely there misty opal effect. Little green spacer leaves look so pretty made with Avonlea.
These flower bud beads are made with a core of Andrew ltd run with Effetre light aqua petals over the top. I often use a harmonising transparent glass over the top of an opaque or opal core for these textured beads. The opal blue here makes the flowers look as though they glow from within.

Andrew is a perfect opal shade of powder blue. One of my absolute favourites glass colours from this round of testing. It makes me think of summer skies and sunshine. There is no sign of a reaction with silvered ivory stringer.
I have made these last two pairs of little hearts with Adriatic ltd run. It is another example of  CiM's new misty opal glass, this time in a pretty shade of blue that leans towards aqua a bit. It's very beautiful.
