"What's not to like, beautiful in both rod form and finished bead, one of a kind, absolutely love this colour. Recommend pre-heating the rods. Like a teal blue-green, stunning. Here with added transparent purple petals which does colour shift the final result. I love how you can create new hues from the glass through layering. I love the colours as they are, but it’s pretty awesome how much you can also expand the colour palette too." – Juliette Mullett

"These beads are made with Aquamarine Ice Misty and Consuelo Misty. The central bead is deeply encased in clear. It appears to work well in deep encasement, which is a major plus as many other manufacturers I have tried in the past cracked."

"Nice translucent teal shade- same working characteristics as Aquamarine Ice Misty. Clean melting and stable. Love the deep blue green shade."
Anna Miller
"Consuelo Misty and Milky. The long body fish is the Misty, the short one is the Milky. It might be a bit more intensely colored, hard to say. Gorgeous color."
Dwyn Tomlinson
"I think the colors complement each other well and work so lovely with Double Helix silver glass! The round beads are a 50/50 of Aiko and Consuelo Misty with a sprinkling of Double Helix Aurae fine frit and reduced to bring out the metallic glitter of the silver glass." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"Consuelo is a beautiful green teal and one of my new favourites. It is meant to be a misty/milky version of Marine but I find it to be a transparent version of Mermaid."
Suzy Hannabuss
"Turquoise comes to mind with this beautiful colour and blends well with my natural stones. Smooth and silky. Silver pops with this colour. The Milky version is so close to the Misty. Love them both."

"The name Consuelo is a chic, elegant name that roughly translates into 'solace' or 'comfort' making it the perfect name for this color as I found it calming to work with. In addition to being one of my favorite colors, Consuelo was extremely easy to work with- no popping or shocking and it blew easily, played well with others including touches of Effetre glass, and made lovely round beads."
Susan Parry
"Consuelo is such a deep and velvety teal blue! I had a hard time with my Sony camera which seemed to want to make it too blue and not deep enough for some reason. This one comes in both a milky and a misty version and they are both gorgeous. I noticed very little difference between the two. My working notes: minimally shocky, nice melting, no scum, easy to sculpt.”

“I made a sculptural bird bead with Consuelo Misty. Nice teal color and it was easy to work with. I began with a clear ‘core’ body and then encased in Consuelo 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
"Consuelo 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."
