"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!" – Dwyn Tomlinson

"This simple set of jewelry box beads was created on a base of CiM's Fjord Milky, a bluish teal milky opal, sprinkled with Val Cox Sadie Hawkins frit. Two crystal shapes, four rounds and two spacers make up this set." See more at Darlene's blog.

"Fjord is a beautiful transparent turquoise and definitely a colour that is needed in the 104 colour palette."

"Fjord Milky is identical to the Misty and almost close in opacity. So smooth in melting and works beautifully shaping my goddesses. A touch more blue in this turquoise colour. Fun summer shade."
Jean Daniels
"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
"Absolutely divine and mixes well with other colours. The most gorgeous opal ocean blue that works well on its own as well as being mixed with other colours, I love this colour and so do my customers. Melts like butter, no boiling or scumming, but would recommend preheating."

“I made a sculptural bird bead with Fjord Milky. Nice aqua blue color and it was easy to work with. I began with a clear ‘core’ body and then encased in Fjord Milky. 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
"Here’s a fun little 'test glass' pendant! I grabbed three random new CiM green/blues from my test batch and made a bead! These are all 'milky' versions of Arctic, Atoll and Fjord. I pre-warmed all the rods to minimize any possible shocking and they were problem free. I love the milky versions of CiM- they have a soft, serene quality in my opinion."
Angela Dose
"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 Milky 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."
