Splash Ltd Run (511545)<br />A transparent blue.

A transparent blue.




"The focal bead combines Jet Stream with a lighter blue transparent from CiM called Splash. Blue transparents are always nice when paired with fine silver, and a quick wrap of the 99% fine silver wire was all it needed to create a simple yet elegant bead set for office or casual wear."

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Splash is a melt of Halong Bay that came out completely transparent.
I could not get Splash to turn milky like Halong Bay at all. – Jolene Wolfe
I struck each of the beads 3 times and finally started to see a little cloudiness but not enough to pass it as Halong Bay. It’s a very nice blue though. – Gloria Sevey
I noticed some devitrification after working Splash for awhile. Boosted the oxygen and this seemed to solve the problem. However, after cleaning, a major crack developed through the center. This was the only color I struggled with. – Kim Fields

"CiM says that Splash is a variation of Halong Bay that did not come out as an opal, but as a transparent instead. Which makes me think you could do some cool things with using the two together to get a fade from transparent to translucent by layering. Otherwise, it is a happy little transparent light sapphire blue." Read more at DragonJools' blog.
