CiM Tester Feedback

  • Glacier was engineered because we had many requests for a replacement for the old Italian odd lot known as "frosty blue."

Laura Sparling used Glacier with a mix of purples.

"This miniset of 6 goddess series beads was created on a base of Glacier with layered dots of Effetre Dark Ivory & silver glasses Double Helix's Psyche & Trautman Art's Golden Emerald. Highlights of Double Helix Aurae silver glass create the bling for these beautiful storm portal beads." Read more at Darlene's blog.

“Glacier with Silvered Ivory Shards – front one etched and so wonderful I want to carry it around with me all the time. Back one is not etched. Nice but not the same look. Glacier needs to be etched IMHO.”

"This glass is really, really, really soft, too. I'm tempted to say - softer than white. It literally took longer for the spacers to cool down and stop moving than it did to melt the gather and make the next one." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"For those who have not noticed, Glacier looks a lot like that infamous Italian Odd Lot color that was call Frosty Blue that you can’t find for sale any more."  Read more at the Frantz Art Glass blog.
