CiM Tester Feedback

  • Please note that some of our testers found that Swan yellowed, sometimes just by itself, and often when used with silver glass.
  • Swan & Cotton were melted as misty / milky opal equivalents to our popular opal color Marshmallow [which is opaque-ish after annealing].
  • Special thanks to Claudia Eidenbenz for providing the photo in this section.

"Here is a side by side comparison of Swan [left] and Cotton [right] hearts which are variations on CiM's Marshmallow opal white. Swan is what CiM describes as a misty opal. It was made in a very small quantity and will not likely be readily available in the UK. The Swan hearts are wrapped with Onyx." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Swan decorated with mixed frit. This glass melted smoothly with no issues except that it didn’t stay white for me. Not sure if it was due to having other beads in the kiln with reduced silver glass or if the extended session caused it to turn yellow." See more at Darlene's blog.

"On a base of Swan, layered silver glass dots were added and capped with clear portals. There is a golden yellow shift in Swan rather than staying as a white hue." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"Swan is very similar to London Fog but I still prefer London Fog. I really like all the misty opals."
Suzy Hannabuss
"The small Swan bead was tiny just so I could try etching, and the spinner beads are still quite small [12mm]. You see that they both have yellow tinges. They weren't over worked, quite quick to make, but I did marver them so they did have some heating and cooling. I did find later that if worked cooler and with a slight oxidising flame that it was better. When photographed, it does pick up some yellow that the eye doesn't see, so to some extent the yellow will still be there but nowhere near as visible!"

"Swan is a gorgeous misty opal white that is translucent but is not timid in the light."

"My absolute favourite. A gorgeous inner radiant glow amongst the virgin white softness of the opal white. Absolutely incredible."
