"The bottom row contains the test beads of each of the nine glasses, the bottom bead of that glass alone, in the middle covered with clear and top on white. The beads on the other mandrel are my typical test beads that I do when I want to know how colorful some translucent glass is as a thin layer. Even though I tried to capture the colors as truthfully as possible, the shades are a little different than what they are in reality. At least on my screen." Read more at Maikki's blog.

"This set of 9 goddess series beads were created on a base of Caribbean, with layered dots of Effetre Dark Ivory and a mixture of transparent and silver glasses. Double Helix rare Psyche Light limited run silver glass creates the multicolored portals captured under each drop of clear glass. Highlights of Double Helix Aurae create the dots of shiny bling."

"I used Caribbean by itself and mixed with Marble in this set. I also added in Halong Bay both mixed with Marble and by itself to round out the soft blues for a blue jean effect. Really love the creamy, translucent beads that came from mixing both glasses with Marble. Marble continues to be a very stable and wonderful catalyst for hand-mixing. No devitrification issues and an easy blend!"

"Caribbean is a pretty medium blue colour, a touch darker than Effetre Medium Blue, and quite a bit lighter than CiM Sapphire. It also seems like it might be a hair on the greener side than Sapphire is. It is a pretty colour that is fairly stable, not reacting strongly with other colours." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"This is a denim blue - that smokey Montana Blue Sapphire colour that has been missing from the colour palette. It looks like medium sapphire in this photo to me, on my monitor - so I'm not sure what it will look like to you, but in real life, it looks darker and more muted - like denim!"
