"Avonlea over Lovebirds and pulled into cased stringer for the center. I wanted the center to be translucent, but a soft & bright spring green." – Marcy Lamberson

These flower buds are made with a core of Avonlea with Effetre light aqua petals over the top. It's a  very striking combination.

"Avonlea is a bright happy grass green with a barely there misty opal effect. Little green spacer leaves look so pretty made with Avonlea." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"All of these colors melted beautifully! I had no shocking and no pitting or boiling. As you can see from the photos another happy surprise was almost zero reaction with fine silver .999. In my experience, turquoise colors can have organic reactions to silver but these colors remained true. Some of these colors are colors that have the same base batch but are split into two and one will remain a misty opal [more transparent] and one will remain a milky opal [more opaque]. Witches' Brew & Lovebirds, Avonlea & Shamrock, and Sea Glass & Lady Of The Lake are all examples of these pairings. Basically all of these colors have a place in my heart and the 104 line. The subtle changes in the transparency and hues is like having an unlimited paint palette in glass! These colors also lend a range of saturations depending on whether they are layered with bases of clear or white. All of the photos were straight color to show true outcomes. The only exception is Avonlea which I felt might not show the black line art so that is over white."

"Avonlea is a lovely green with just a touch of mistiness."

"Avonlea absolutely sings when combined with Double Helix Melia silver glass. This set of beads shows surface and encased decorations. Spacers are solid Avonlea." See more at Darlene's blog.

"Avonlea is a beautiful transparent green. And it doesn't bleed! So excited as I encase a lot and it is nice to have a beautiful green to use. This will be on my must buy list!"
Suzy Hannabuss
"These are like 2 peas from the same pod, but each with their own special personality! Made with such a cheerful shade of green, Avonlea is a misty opal and Shamrock is an opal that stays translucent! These new types of glass are exactly why CiM are so different from any other glass manufacturers out there. They bring us types of glass and colours that make our hearts sing! I'm a green girl and my Irish heritage [Doherty is an Irish name] draws me towards these colours, especially when one is called Shamrock!"

"Avonlea is a new bright green misty opal, kinda reminds me of bottle green. While there are a few greens out there in similar hues, I'd say that this is definitely brighter and for sure a happy spring shade! One for the green lovers out there!"
Trudi Doherty
"A lovely cheery green, think medium Christmas green colour. Similar to Effetre grass green. Works great with silver glass."
Juliette Mullett
"This is a green – a very green – misty opal. It’s so bright and springy! Again, no trouble with this one on the shocking front but I did have a bit of a bubbly rod. Nothing major and bubbly rods do happen [you can normally tell by holding the rod up to the light and checking for the telltale line/s inside that run along the length of it] but I just thought I’d say. I doubt all rods of Avonlea will have this; I guess it’s all dependent on if there was any air trapped in the original pull at the factory. [I’m guessing here: I don’t make glass – I just melt it.] The photo is Avonlea with CiM Dirty Martini." Read more at Laura's blog.
