CiM - Creation Is Messy 2022 Color - Lake Baikal Ltd Run - A Revisit

Creation Is Messy’s 2022 Lake Baikal Ltd Run is a transparent blue with subtle lavender wisps.

I fell in love with this glass during my spring glass testing and was so excited to pick up some rods of it on a recent visit to Nortel in Toronto. 

First up, a small set of Goddess beads.
I had previously tested CiM’s Birchwood Ltd Run for its friendliness to other silver glasses, so it was fitting to create my Goddess beads to test how Lake Baikal would behave with layered portals.

Starting on a base of this glass, I layered dots of CiM Birchwood, CiM’s extremely dark blue Indigo , CiM’s Jetstream transparent blue. I used some Double Helix test glass named SR859 and reduced it. 

Clear portal dots of Effetre clear were added to capture the stormed reaction of the silver glass producing streams of blues.

Dots of Double Helix Elpis complete each bead.

Next up, a set of tapered flat focal beads.

This set of beads started with Lake Baikal with ends of CiM’s transparent blue named Jetstream.

I wrapped 99% fine silver wire over the centres and encased it with Effetre Clear glass to allow the silver to melt to droplets and protect the surface of each bead.

These would be beautiful together in a necklace or made into separate drop pendants.

The CiM - Creation Is Messy website shows Jetstream and Indigo as Sold Out, so contact Nortel as they may have some in stock.
