CiM Tester Feedback

  • Spearmint was mixed in response to frequent requests for a "blu-er" version of Kryptonite.
It's only a tiny, tiny bit bluer than Kryptonite. – Gloria Sevey
Spearmint is a refreshing minty blue. The color addition spans the gap between Kryptonite and Mint Lozenge. – Heather Sellers

"Spearmint is the translucent opal glass paired with CiM's new turquoise glass named Quetzal. A stream of handmade silvered ivory was twisted to create the division between the two glasses. The spacers that are paired with this set are another CiM glass from my stash called Mint Lozenge." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"My opinion on Spearmint is that it isn’t substantially different from Kryptonite. I would have believed it was Kryptonite because it is not as green as Sea Foam and not as blue as Mint Lozenge. I can only process so many similar shades."
Melanie Graham
"Two self-coloured spacers, and one with trails of dark ivory. While the ivory has some separating - there is no grey/black reaction line - so if you are looking for a green that will give you ivory without the grey line - bingo - here you go." Read more at DragonJools blog.
Dwyn Tomlinson
"It’s beautiful and keeps its translucency . . . at least with the smallish spacer beads that I made."
