Beads and jewllery on Folksy


Messy testing - Elegance, Douglas Aster and Glycerin Milky ltd run

In today's blog post I am showing beads made with 3 very pretty new CoE 104 glass colours from the Creation is Messy spring 2022 release that will be available to buy soon. 

First up is this utterly lovely soft pastel pink opal glass is called Elegance. It's so beautiful!

Like all premium pink glass rods, I imagine Elegance ltd run will have a premium price tag attached, but oh boy is this one special!

The next new glass colour I am showing today is called Douglas Aster ltd run. It's a soft and pretty shade of pastel purple.The top pair of hearts have a core of Douglas Aster which I have encased with Effetre 006. The other two pairs of Douglas Aster hearts are decorated with Reichenbach dense black. This one is a beauty, such a lovely lavender colour.

Only one pair of the hearts in this last picture were made with Glycerine ltd run. I wanted to compare Glycerine with some Diaphanous misty and milky hearts from my last glass testing blog post.

The Glycerine hearts are the pair at the top that look the most opaque (let the least light pass through). Moving around in a clockwise direction, the next two hearts are Diaphanous milky and the last two hearts are Diaphanous misty (white dots). Aside from looking obviously more opaque, Glycerine has a much cooler icy looking tone. Diaphanous looks positively toasty in comparison!
