CiM - Creation Is Messy 2022 Color - Glycerin Milky Ltd Run

Creation Is Messy’s 2022 Glycerin Milky Ltd Run is an off-white milky opal that bead testers describe as a moonstone. It is a clean white in my opinion and it melted smoothly with no issues.

I love to pair a neutral hue with a dark blue and silver, so I thought it would be perfect to use a glass frit by Val Cox called Starry Night and some 99% fine silver wire.

Starry Night frit is a fantastic navy blue with an aventurine sparkle. 
After a sprinkling and a melting in, I wrapped each round bead with fine silver wire to complete the bead.
Note the centre bead made of Glycerin with a wrap of silver wire is clean with no fuming from the fine silver.

There was no reaction between Glycerin and the silver and the brightness of the white remained true.

Starry Night glass frit is available through Nortel Glass in Toronto as I do not see it on Val's site currently.
