CiM Testing : Sepia Unique 2

CiM 'Sepia Unique 2' Beads
I was delighted to find a rod of this beautiful glass in my testing package from Creation Is Messy.  As a fan of Sepia I was intrigued to work with this Sepia Unique.  It's not at all brown.  In fact it's a gorgeous smoky blue with a tiny hint of mauve about it. 

It was a total pleasure to work with and if you're a fan of blue you need, need, need to grab some of this while you can.  It's a Messy Unique so it's best to be quick before it's all gone.

This Sepia Unique looks fabulous with silver.  Here it is with  fine silver and Vetrofond Clear :

And it looks gorgeous when etched.  Here it is with Effetre 268 Pearl Grey polka dots and etched to a velvety finish :

As I say, if you love blue then I highly recommend this Sepia Unique.  It's just totally lovely!

Now I'm going to have to get some, and I've just ordered!

How does it work - the normal sepia can sometimes not play nice - but I love it!

Kevin - I'm trying to get around to each available glass and yes, Ming is a beautiful blue!

Abi - thank you. The glass is lovely.

Trudi - I've never had a problem with regular Sepia. As I said, the Sepia Unique is a total pleasue to work with. I didn't find it fussy at all. :o)

Beautiful as ever. Will you be selling some on Wednesday?

Thanks Fiona. Those two sets were all I could make with the one rod I had and they sold in the Etsy shop this morning.

Oooooooooooooh, isn't it gorgeous! How can I not buy any?!

Someone called Kimberley has joined your Followers list, I had to look twice because I thought it was a photo of me! (I'm easily confused ...)

Wow, what a wonderful colour - wish I knew how to make beads!

Have you ever done a post about etching beads? (and if not will you?)

I loved your tutorial on encasing, and I'm intrigued about the opaque effects you get by etching the beads and wonder how it's done :D
