I've got the song from the Addams Family stuck in my head. I recently listed the earring set below on Etsy, named L'Heure Bleue after the way the intense blue, glowing color reminds me of twilight. Of course, being a child when I was I immediately made the association, "Tish, that's French!" and viola! I'm stuck with Gomez for the rest of the day. The old one, not the excellent portrayal by the late Raoul Julia.These earrings seem to glow on their own just like the light at dusk seems to almost self-illuminate. I love the glass, CiM sapphire, because everything I make with it does this. I don't think you could make a truly horrible bead with this color. I don't know whether it's the degree of saturation or the just-right frequency of light that it transmits, but it's a winner.
I'm definitely going to be laying in a supply of this lovely glass. It doesn't do for everything, and for what it won't work for there are other glasses to use, but if I could only have one shade of transparent blue in my palette this would probably be it.
