I swirled some silver glass with Jelly Bean and encased it and it held it's color and allowed the silver glass to create some beautiful color and mother of pearl reactions. Very difficult to photograph it's glassy goodness.

CiM Tester Feedback

  • Jelly Bean is a mismelt of the Chartreuse formula. It was just a shade too green to pass as Chartreuse. Jelly Bean is a unique addition to the 104 lampworking palette.
Jelly Bean is an extremely unique color for 104. – Heather Sellers
Comparing to CiM's other opal greens, it is a more definite green than Chartreuse but lighter and more translucent than Inchworm. A fabulous addition to 104 coe! – Trudi Doherty
"Jelly Bean is a really unique, almost fluorescent moonstone green that reminds me very much of vintage Vaseline glass. It positively "glows" against a black background, but sadly, it doesn't fluoresce under a black light. It is slightly more transparent than Chartreuse, and a touch more green as well." – Renee Wiggins

"Jelly Bean is somewhat similar to Chartreuse in its glowing green, though is greener and less yellow, and is less transparent inside so the mandrel line is barely evident in these barrels. This is a soft colour when molten. Like many opalinos it can crack near the end of the rod when it cools, which is visible so you can melt it back in carefully when you next use the rod."

"Jelly Bean prefers to be torched on the cool side but I turned the heat way up to get this bubbly effect."
Gloria Sevey
"Jelly Bean is a bright opal green which I thought would be perfect with lots of bling from Double Helix Aurae silver glass frit! Again this green stayed bright and cheerful with no fuming reaction from the silver glass." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"Here’s a little blown hollow ghost made in Jelly Bean."
Laura Sparling
"Jelly Bean is similar in hue to Chartreuse tending just a little greener, but worked up a bit differently for me, streaking and bubbling more. Reducing Jelly Bean doesn't change its colour or opacity." Read more at Melanie's blog.
Melanie Graham
"Jelly Bean melts really nicely, although I did experience a little bit of scumming with focused heat, so I would recommend using a cooler flame. In the rod, it looks like there are rings of color through the core, but in my tests, the color evened out to a single toned color. Jelly Bean is a really nice addition to the electric greens in this new family of colors from CiM!"
Renee Wiggins
"I didn’t think I’d like this one but I did. I’m really averse to chartreuse as a colour [it always makes my eyes wince] but Jelly Bean is more green than CiM Chartreuse and I really like its zinginess. The glass is really nice; a translucent light, vibrant green that didn’t shock or bubble, and it doesn’t have the striations or ‘webbing’ that other CiM opals sometimes have. Jelly Bean is also the closest green to Vetrofond Parrot Green that I have used. These photos were taken indoors in natural daylight." Read more at Laura's tumblr.
Laura Sparling
"Jelly Bean sits between Chartreuse and Inchworm, to me. lt looks close to Chartreuse but a bit more of a green blue while Chartreuse is a bit more of a yellow green. It melted beautifully with no shocking scumming or bubbling. I put it over Limelight in a butterfly wing and it stayed wonderfully translucent."
Caroline Davis
"Jelly Bean melted like butter and without shockiness or bubbles. Jelly Bean makes me think of a chartreuse version of Cirrus. It is definitely unique to the 104 color palette. Jelly Bean is a hit with me. I don’t know if it was the frit reacting with the silver foil or a combination of the frit, silver foil and Jelly Bean, but the French Blue frit developed a cool little bullseye in each frit dot."

Paula Schertz
"The middle segment here is Chartreuse and the outer segments are Jelly Bean. The Chartreuse is slightly more opaque, and slightly more yellow. But just hanging around randomly - I doubt most people will be able to tell the difference. . . . if you have a production line using Chartreuse - the Jelly Bean will probably make a totally adequate substitution. It is only marginally more blue than the Chartreuse and no where close to the much bluer Inchworm." Read more at DragonJools' blog.

"Jelly Bean is a pale apple green opal glass, shown here with turquoise dots. This picture shows how it compares with Chartreuse [lime dots] and Inchworm [black dots]. It's a very pretty colour, unique to the 104 glass palette and fairly easy to work with. I find it is a fairly stiff glass and if worked too hot you can create micro-bubbles on the tip of the rod."

Jolene Wolfe
"Many opals do not like to be encased, and I was asked to see how or if Jelly Bean would stand up. So not only did I encase it, but I used a different 104 coe brand Effetre. Made 2 days ago and cleaned with a dremel. So far so good! Difficult to see but it has a soft moonstone glow effect! I like it a lot!"
Trudi Doherty
"Jelly Bean melted just fine without pre-warming, no pitting or bubbling. The plain spacer beads I made a few hours apart and the length of time soaking in the kiln didn't effect the colour. What I also love is that in these smaller beads [approximately 12 mm] it does stay translucent - even the heart that had a few presses and heating and cooling with the dots. Couldn't resist making a jelly bean!"
Trudi Doherty
"Jelly Bean is a tart, candy apple green. Similar in nature to CiM's translucent Chartreuse, but with a hint more green. A wonderful new addition to the CiM family. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing." Read more at Heather's blog.
