"004 clear core, 204 white case, Sea Glass torso- viscous but workable. Very plastic. One small reduced section disappeared with oxydized flame. Not shocky or devit like other transluscents. Smooth as butter. Beautiful, dreamy color."

"CiM are really outdoing themselves with their misty and milky opals at the moment! They are all gorgeous! Sea Glass is a very pale and delicate misty opal - it definitely lives up to its name. Nymph is another misty opal which is a gorgeous shade of light turquoise and Ice Mint is a more translucent opal which again, is a yummy shade of turquoise. I wouldn't normally photograph beads in direct sunlight but the way the light goes through these needs to be seen to be believed, it's really magical. I've also included Sea Foam which is distinctly greener and much more of an opaque opal."

"Sea Glass is a pale green misty opal that melted smoothly and worked well with Double Helix silver glass to create wispy petals within these Waterlily beads. The spacers are Sea Glass and Peacock Feather." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"All of these colors melted beautifully! I had no shocking and no pitting or boiling. As you can see from the photos another happy surprise was almost zero reaction with fine silver .999. In my experience, turquoise colors can have organic reactions to silver but these colors remained true. Some of these colors are colors that have the same base batch but are split into two and one will remain a misty opal [more transparent] and one will remain a milky opal [more opaque]. Witches' Brew & Lovebirds, Avonlea & Shamrock, and Sea Glass & Lady Of The Lake are all examples of these pairings. Basically all of these colors have a place in my heart and the 104 line. The subtle changes in the transparency and hues is like having an unlimited paint palette in glass! These colors also lend a range of saturations depending on whether they are layered with bases of clear or white. All of the photos were straight color to show true outcomes. The only exception is Avonlea which I felt might not show the black line art so that is over white."

"This focal bead is a combination of Sea Glass with a centre stripe of Firedragon. Layers of clear and Double Helix silver glass were added and encased to create the rich magenta pink. The spacers are pure Sea Glass." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"Sea Glass is a pale, pale, lovely green glass tinged with just a hint of blue and mistiness."
Gloria Sevey
"Sea Glass is perfectly named. It is just the most lovely pale aqua/teal translucent glass. Not finicky at all and takes to sculpture like a duck to water."
Lori Peterson
"They are all such beautiful colours. I have to say I really love the misty opals the best. They have a lovely glimmer inside. So my preference would be Sea Glass, Nymph and Ice Mint but how is one to decide? They are all so beautiful!"
Suzy Hannabuss
"These are on the paler end of the new minty greens from CiM! Lady Of the Lake is a translucent opal, and Sea Glass is the misty opal counterpart. Both gorgeous and fresh. I'm loving that all the new translucent opals stay translucent, it makes them very special indeed, and the misty opals really do glow sofly, what's not to love!"
Trudi Doherty
"I think you would be hard pressed to find anyone who will dislike this glass. In rod form it is a beautiful opal sea green [think Bahamas], in bead form it is even more beautiful [didn't think that would be possible]. Semi translucent with a misty look and subtle beautiful inner glow. I am in love with this glass. Similar to new colour Nymph. A definite upgrade to Peacock Green. Similar to Lady of the Lake."
Juliette Mullett
"Be still my beating heart! In this new batch of colours, there are some beautiful fresh minty greens. They kinda go in pairs as CiM has made some misty opals and coordinating opals that stay translucent. I've pictured them all together so that you can easily compare them!"
Trudi Doherty
"Sea Glass is a beautiful pale blue-green and it’s a misty opal which means it has that almost glowy translucency about it. The glass melts smoothly and it’s actually quite soft, but not in a gloopy soupy way. No shocking or bubbling. It didn’t like stringer being added to it – it made the stringer go all feathery and distorted – but it doesn’t matter because it’s one of those glasses that just speaks for itself. The beads were photographed indoors in natural daylight." Read more at Laura's blog.
