CiM Testing: Blueberry Muffin

Handmade lampwork glass silver core big hole charm beads by Laura Sparling made with CiM Blueberry Muffin

In rod form, Blueberry Muffin looks like a very dark indigo-purple. It was engineered to be an opal version of CiM Lapis. When I took these beads out of the kiln they’d lost their purpleness and instead they are a very dark navy blue. Such a lovely colour!

These beads are just solid Blueberry Muffin – no layering so they are very dark but I guess you could desaturate the colour a bit by layering it over clear or white or whatever.

The scrolls on these ones are Effetre Light Turquoise 232.
