Morgan Ltd Run (511923)<br />A pink cloudy transparent with a golden shimmer.

A pink cloudy transparent with a golden shimmer.




"When I first saw this rod of glass I was intrigued by it. It looks like one of the other new cloudy transparents, with the coloured glass inside the clear [have a look at the Vintage Rose glass I posted] but the rod has a very pale golden shimmer to it. As soon as I started melting it I could see some sort of pearlescent effect happening. . . . Whatever Morgan is, I like it. The pearly effect is subtle but it’s definitely there and when you move the bead the light catches it in a beautiful glimmery way. No shockiness, but there are a few tiny bubbles – nothing too obtrusive, though." Read more at Laura's blog. – Laura Sparling

"A very delicate and pale rose pink which needs quite a bit of heating and cooling to bring out the colours. Works well with silver glass. A very subtle hue that would be suitable if using in bridal jewellery or if you are looking for an understated pink. It did bubble a little in places. A little bit of boiling here and there, nothing major though. It does seem to have a very delicate grey hue to it in certain light."
