CiM Testing: Lady of the Lake

Handmade lampwork glass bead earrings by Laura Sparling made with CiM Lady of the Lake

Lady of the Lake is the same hue as Sea Glass but it is more translucent, without the ethereal misty opal quality that Sea Glass has.

Again, it was a very nice glass to work with but it was fussy when it came to adding stringer. I totally expected this as a lot of the CiM opals absolutely hate stringer.

The photo below shows Sea Glass on the left and Lady of the Lake on the right. The difference is subtle but it is there.


The beads were photographed indoors in natural daylight except for the last one. That was indoors under LED light.
