A bluish teal misty opal.




“I made a sculptural bird bead with Fjord Misty. Nice aqua blue color and it was easy to work with. I began with a clear ‘core’ body and then encased in Fjord Misty. This gives an opportunity to see encasement with the color. The head, wings and tail were added straight from the rod. I used Reichenbach Deep Black for the base of the beak followed by Effetre Pastel Yellow. The eyes were also Reichenbach Deep Black.” – Kim Fields

"This is Fjord Misty [top and left] and Milky [flowy-er tail]. The Milky appears lighter, but is thinner. I was having a lot of trouble with the rod shocking. Great color!"

"Fjord is a beautiful transparent turquoise and definitely a colour that is needed in the 104 colour palette."
Suzy Hannabuss
“Fjord Misty is described as a bluish teal misty opal and a relative to CiM Aegean transparent teal. I looked through my CiM stash and noticed that Atlantis seemed to match Fjord quite well. To see how these 2 glasses compare, I created the following beads with mixtures of the two. If you look closely at the spacer beads, you will see the comparison of the two Fjord spacers in the middle between the Atlantis spacer beads. Each tapered barrel bead has one end of Fjord and other is Atlantis. It is on these beads were I see a very slight greenish hue on the Fjord where the DH Notos silver glass fumed a golden cast. The round beads are solid Fjord with silver glass streams and dots.” See more at Darlene’s blog.

"Fjord Misty is going to convert me to wanting to use opalinos now! Another wonderful teal blue color. Applied over a white core, not shocky or bubbly, stiff to work with and holds the heat well while working in the flame for >1.5 hours. Takes an enamel layer without any bubbling."
Tammy Mercier
"Fjord Misty is a soft teal leaning to a blue shade. Melts so well and smooth. Reminds me of Serenity in a misty look. Fjord Milky was very close to Fjord Misty."
Jean Daniels
"Fjord Misty is a lovely aqua blue. It melted nicely with no bubbling or shockiness. I did warm the rod first just in case. Birchwood is the ivory colour which also behaved nicely in the flame. The two colours didn’t react to each other but you can see some fuming on the Birchwood from the silver foil which I used on the Fjord before adding some Val Cox River Dance frit."
Josephine Wadman
"Fjord is a beautiful color and very easy to apply. Love it. A few tiny bubbles in the rod."
Carol Ann Savage
"Fjord was Kim's favorite of the blues. It is a mid-toned turquoise blue [much like CiM 576 Peacock Feather] and there is a noticeable difference between the misty and the milky. Both behaved beautifully in the flame and were easy to sculpt."
Lori Peterson
"Fjord is a fresh aquamarine glass, misty & milky versions of the transparent Aegean. This shade works very well with rustic browns, and I couldn't resist making these beach inspired beads. I found that both rods melted easily, slightly on the soft side. While close, the misty is definitely more translucent than the milky. These make my wish list for sure!"
Trudi Doherty
"Fjord Misty is Aegean reworked into misty/milky versions. It's a beautiful bluey-teal misty opal. It was easy to melt, not too stiff a transparent. No bubbles or scum and goes a transparent bluey emerald green when hot. It is a cleaner cool blue than Aegean and Peacock Feather after annealing. I would say it was closer in family to Serenity. I didn’t get the Milky version to test but Misty is on the list, very pretty!"

"Fjord is a stunning new aqua blue opal addition to the CoE 104 palette. I find the misty [white dots] and milky [black stringer] versions have a similar opacity with the Misty version only looking more obviously translucent when the beads are held up to the light."

"Fjord Misty is a gorgeous and rich color! It melted smoothly and was easy to move and shape. Unfortunately, I did have a crack develop in this piece . . . so something about this glass didn't like encasing or being encased by silvered ivory."
