CiM Tester Feedback

  • Envy was engineered in response to requests for the (now sold out) Emerald City, basically a more forest-y transparent green than Oz.
Oz is more yellow than Envy. Emerald City is significantly more blue than Envy. – Gloria Sevey
"Envy is a close cousin to Emerald City. This new color has a slightly grassy hue." Read more at Heather's blog. – Heather Sellers

"I made test beads, first a basic bead using only the colour in question and then a white bead I covered quite thickly with the said glass. Ultimate test was a triangle bead using a couple of greens in it. Glass melts very thinly in the triangle beads and it is covered with clear [Effetre 006 in this case] which can kind of dilute it optically even more." Read more at Maikki's blog.

"Envy is nice to work with. It’s smooth and utterly bubble-free. . . . Envy would make a good Christmas green. It’d be great for holly leaves and other festive bead shenanigans." Read more at Laura's tumblr.

"The latest reaction of CiM's Envy gives me butterflies. The initial color is a transparent emerald, but a reaction occurs when paired with a dark ivory that awakens the nutty glass nerd inside. Kind of like the joker's guttural laugh rising from my soul, but I digress.... back to the cool reaction which creates a new band of color between Envy and ivory glass. This is not a moody metallic line of demarcation one might expect, but a rich avocado halo of awesomeness." Read more at Heather's blog.

"Envy sits about halfway between Oz and Emerald City in shade. These beads have been decorated with vines made from fine stringers of all three shades of transparent green for direct comparison. The beads on the left with yellow flowers have Oz stringer, middle with red flowers have Envy stringer and on the right hand side with orange flowers the vines are made with Emerald City stringer."
