A pink lavender transparent.




"Enchanted is an easy to work with pale purple that color shifts to a bluer or pinker hue depending on the lighting. The first bead is Enchanted over a core of Spooky, the middle one is Spooky over Enchanted and the third one is as Enchanted as am I." – Gloria Sevey

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Enchanted was melted to replace Jellyfish, a much sought-after bright transparent purple. Testers reported that Enchanted didn't quite match Jellyfish. However, it is a bit pinker than other transparent lavenders.
Jellyfish is pinker than Enchanted. – Gloria Sevey
"Enchanted has more purple / amethyst. Jellyfish is still closer to dark lavender." – Carol Ann Savage
  • Enchanted color shifts depending on the lighting.
"When it comes to color shifting, there are some differences. Enchanted stays on the purplish side when under fluorescent bulbs. You can see in this pic here [kind of crude but it does the trick] that several of the shades shift to a pale blue while others stay lavender-ish but kind of wash out. This is where you might want to consider what colors you are pairing the lavender with to decide whether you want a blue color shift or not. When in sunlight however, the vivid lavender comes out to play." Read more at Kandice's blog. – Kandice Seeber
"Here is Enchanted with Effetre Rosata Extralux, Pale Amethyst, Dark Lavender, and Pale Lavender Blue, and with CiM Pink Champagne. Enchanted is pinker than Effetre Dark Lavender in this studio-lit photo, but is around the same shade of pinkish lavender in natural light." Read more at Melanie's blog. – Melanie Graham

"A little pinker than Effetre transparent Dark Lavender 081, Enchanted is a very pretty pink-lavender. It’s almost identical to Bullseye Light Neo-Lavender Shift. Lovely to work with and there were no hazing issues which I sometimes experience with the Effetre lavenders. These photos were taken indoors in natural daylight." Read more at Laura's tumblr.

"With Enchanted and DH Triton frit, the golden sugar was more evident but there is a slight blue back tint at the surface of the bead." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"Enchanted melted smoothly with no shockiness, it did have a small amount of bubbles. It is a new color to the 104 palette. It was similar to Jellyfish, but a bit less saturated and did bubble a little, whereas Jellyfish didn’t bubble. It is a beautiful color."
Paula Schertz
"Enchanted is quite a bit more reactive with silver than Dark Lavender, which I found interesting since I thought they would work up similarly. Enchanted seems to fume a deeper rose colour with the addition of silver, and encasing silver foil with Enchanted will turn the silver foil golden. Effetre Dark Lavender did not substantially alter the colour of silver and didn't change colour itself when used with it. . . . On the whole, I thought this colour was pretty, but I prefer the price, consistency, and workability of Effetre Dark Lavender. I'd choose Enchanted instead only if I were planning to also work with fine silver and wanted the reactions." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"I sometimes have trouble with boiling the glass and creating micro-bubbles in pale transparent colours because I tend to work on the hot side. Enchanted was very well behaved for me and a real pleasure to work with." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Enchanted was complemented by Double Helix Aurae shards. The silver glass seems to fume a golden hue over the transparent purple glass." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"Enchanted is slightly more pink than Jellyfish. It is a beautiful pinkish purple. No scumming or boiling."

"Enchanted has a definite colour-shift - depending on the lighting. IMHO - it is most beautiful in sunlight." Read more and see the videos at DragonJools blog.

"Enchanted sits pretty much in the middle when it comes to saturation. Here's a pic of the lavenders I have on hand, under reveal bulbs that show true color. [Some of these are discontinued colors, fyi.] You can see that Enchanted is about the same saturation as the colors around it, but just a tiny touch pinker." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"Enchanted is a pale pink lavender. When compared to Effetre Transparent Dark Lavender, Enchanted has a light plum hue. [Enchanted is on the Left, Effetre Dark Lavender is on the Right]. Light hazing occurred during testing but cleared up as the glass became molten." Read more at Heather's blog.

"An attempt by CiM to remake Jellyfish. Sometimes you really do need to look at colours in good daylight . . . at first glance in my studio many of these looked very similar, but here you can see they look quite different. In rod form Enchanted looks just a touch paler than Jellyfish, and in comparison to CVC, Dark Lavender & Tranquility it veers towards the pink side of the colour palette. Enchanted melted like a dream, smooth and with no issues at all. It will colour shift to show more blue shades under different light sources."
