Everyone I know is in one of three places - and none of those places are here. Three fabulous events are overlapping this year - usually it's just two events - The ISGB (International Society of Glass Beadmakers) Annual Convention and EAA AirVenture overlap every year - forcing me to have to choose between the two. This year - they ram up hard on the heels of the Canadian German Shepherd Dog Championship and Sieger Show. Pfui.
So I have stayed home, and actually, finally, in the peace and quiet of no one being around, got some time in on the torch! Which is lovely - as I have some shiny new CiM colours to try out!
First up, we have CiM 509 Poseidon. Poseidon is described as an "Opal Sky Blue." It is, indeed, a misty, translucent colour, in a soft, pale aqua blue.
In the first photo, you can see the finished beads along side the rod. The rod is quite a bit bluer than the finished beads - but as you can see from the second photo - there is a variation from left to right.
This is such a pretty colour, and I am just a sucker for translucence, that this is definitely going on to the must have list.
