"Clear core, Stone Ground case with dabs of Lunar, London Fog and Dried Sage stirred in [AWESOME!!]. Torso is Shamrock- nice, viscous, great for sculpting."

"Shamrock is a perfect pair for Double Helix’s OX459 green silver buster glass. The glass stayed rich and translucent in each of these beads. A few copper foil decorations were added to one of the focal beads. The spacers are pure Shamrock." See more at Darlene's 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."

"Shamrock is a beautiful, translucent green. It’s very similar to Avonlea but it got a bigger dose of misty."
Gloria Sevey
"Shamrock is the translucent opal version of Avonlea. It’s a rich, bright green that works nicely with no fussiness. The rod I’ve got is a bit bubbly but not overly so. The beads were photographed indoors in natural daylight." Read more at Laura's blog.

"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!"
