CiM Tester Feedback

  • Coming Up Roses is a color shifter depending on the lighting, and also it is difficult to photograph. Our testers experienced a wide variety of hues: pink with a slight purplish tone, dusty rose, brown, etc.

"Coming Up Roses had some air channels in the slightly off-shape rods which could indicate problems with the glass, but the bubbles were easy to pluck out and the glass ended up just fine. The color is gorgeous."
Laurie Nessel
"Coming Up Roses is a soft dusty rose transparent, it rounds out the stable of pinks available from CiM. It had an interesting reaction with the silver foil, turning it a rich gold. While it is not as saturated a colour as some of CiM’s pinks, it was easy to work. Shown here as spacers, over white, and encasing silver foil."
Janet Evans
"I was pleasantly surprised with Coming Up Roses. When I first looked at the unheated rod, I assumed it would look like many of the neo-lavender type glasses I’ve seen before. I was wrong. This glass lives up to its name. Once heated, it turns into a soft subtle rose color. I was also surprised at how easy it was to work with. Most transparent glass tends to be stiff. This one flowed easily and was easy to blow as well."
Susan Parry
"Pink Pansy and Coming Up Roses! Such beautiful glass- SO hard to photograph for me though. I hope I did them justice! Coming Up Roses, a pale pinky purple with color shifting properties depending on the lighting source . . . sometimes a blue tint, sometimes a pale pinky purple. So pretty! Easy peasy to work with, didn't give me any fuss. Coming Up Roses has little micro bubbles in the rod, this didn’t bother me in the slightest. I kinda like them, it gives it that handcrafted feel in my opinion! A gorgeous addition to the glass palette."
Angela Dose
"I was expecting a pale pastel purple/pink but Coming Up Roses ended up with a brownish hue. Not sure what the issue is. I made a simple spacer bead. I also made a second bead with a base of Effetre Super Clear. The left side was then encased in Effetre white to represent the opaque, the middle in CiM Marshmallow to represent the translucent, and finally the right remained clear to represent the transparent. Coming Up Roses was then wound onto this bead. This gives the opportunity to see encasement in a variety of common beadmaking situations.”
Kim Fields
"Coming Up Roses is a pretty transparent pink that has definite purple undertones, which is nice as it makes it quite different from other pinks. It worked fine for me in the flame, and while there are some micro bubbles, I usually find with glass like this to work a touch cooler. It pairs well with Dollhouse Milky as you can see!"

"Coming up Roses is a beautiful soft transparent pink but slightly on the purple side."
Suzy Hannabuss
"Coming Up Roses is a lovely pale pink purple tone. Here it is layered over CiM Desert Pink. Not shocky and no issues with bubbling or scumming. Played nicely with dichroic and silver glass on the surface of the bead."
Terri Herron
"Coming Up Roses is a transparent pink glass that has a slight purplish hue to it. It has a nice smooth, not-too-stiff working consistency and it wasn’t shocky but the rod I had did have a fair few microbubbles in it. They’re not a major issue, though. Remember that you’re looking at a photo of beads that shows them way bigger than they are in real life. The beads here are only 12mm diameter. What I’m trying to balance here is telling you to not let the tiny bubble thing deter you from using this very lovely colour, with simultaneously letting you know that the tiny bubbles are there."

"Coming Up Roses is a transparent pinky purple, a bit like a pale amethyst but a touch pinker. The flowers are Rapunzel [an opaque pinky lilac], topped with Coming up Roses. All the colours behave well in the flame, no shockiness or bubbling."
