CiM Tester Feedback

  • Peachy Keen is a transparent peach.
"Peachy Keen is a wonderful warm orangey peach in comparison to Lauscha and Effetre transparents in that color family. This is a PERFECT transparent pale orange hue!" – Genea Crivello
"It reminds me of Effetre Pink 068 which I have never considered a pink - a nice peach but not pink." – Sue Stewart
  • Special thanks to Genea Crivello-Knable for providing the photo in this section.

"Where have you been all my life? Peach jello, fruit drink and dare I say Crown Royal Peach! So smooth and crystal clear. Had some bubbles but loved it even more. Slower work yielded crystal clear peach colour. A must for summer jewelry."

“Peachy Keen is a stable, light peach color with more saturation than Lauscha Peach or Effetre Pink. It's a perfect shade of peach!” Read more at Kandice’s blog.

Check out Bev Butler’s tutorial using Peachy Keen in the January 2013 issue of the Soda Lime Times to learn how to make “a lovely flower bead that you can personalize with your own creative touches.”

"The golden transparent is called Peachy Keen and the lush opal peach is called Peaches & Cream. I've made some little nugget shaped beads, two plain, two with fine silver leaf, two with a touch of Zimmermann Z096 Gibsey Brown because I so love peachy and chocolaty colours together."  Read more at Jolene's blog.

"This colour reminds me very much of Effetre 068 - which has that same light pink before working, and salmon-y colour after." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"This is a lovely transparent peach coloured glass, that reminds me of the Effetre Amber Rose, which is no longer in production."

“Peachy Keen is a juicy, beautiful light peach transparent. Peachy Keen is far brighter and is quite a lot more saturated than Lauscha Peach, but like Lauscha Peach, the consistency of Peachy Keen is very nice. I didn't experience any boiling, shocking, splintering or any other annoying behaviour while I was using it. . . . When the silver is reduced and encased, magic happens. You can see in the bead that the silver has turned all different shades of blue and purple under the encasement layer of Effetre Clear.” Read more at Melanie’s blog.
