CiM Testing: Heather

Handmade lampwork glass beads in CiM Heather by Laura Sparling

CiM describe Heather as ‘a cloudy transparent magenta’ and I’d say that’s accurate. It’s like a pinker form of Crocus but instead of being a solid colour it’s a mix of clear (I think) and translucent purply-pink.

A lot of these new CiM colours are this cloudy glass and it’s really nice. You get a kind of wispy, ethereal effect which is ever so pretty.

Heather melts smoothly with no shocking or bubbling. It’s a nice middle-of-the-road consistency too.
