1/4 Kilo of Wisteria (Ltd Run) CiM Glass Rods, 11-12 rods.

Ltd Run colours are manufactured in extremely small quantities and might not be repeated again so the advice is always to buy as much as you can if you like it.

Wisteria is described as "a misty opal lavender- the same hue as crocus"

"Oh Wisteria, you are so beautiful. It is a translucent dreamy purple. In my testing it was very similar to Crocus in color but slightly more vibrant. My Wisteria rod shocked once on the cut end but once it got going it melted beautifully. This color is very high on my list to buy."
Caroline Davis

"Wisteria melted smoothly with no shockiness or bubbles. Crocus was already a wonderful color and Wisteria is no different and brings a new color to the 104 palette. I am loving the new translucents and misty opals. These are great and don’t bubble and boil like some of the alabasters and opalinos. I am definitely going to want some more Wisteria."
Paula Schertz

"I predict that everyone will have histeria over Wisteria! This is an easy glass to work with and encasing with it is a dream. I have used it over CiM Rose Quartz which gave an intense bright shade of purple, and over Glacier it gives a dynamic lavender."
Trudi Doherty

"Wisteria was not too stiff, and melted nicely. I was able to use it as encased stringer - I layered it on top of Rapunzel [CiM's opaque pale lavender] and pulled a stringer that worked well for scrolling. It held up well when used that way - which is a nice change from the usually persnickety opals, which tended to pop off and crack when used as encased stringer for scrollwork. I think Misty Opals would probably be better used as a base, or as raised decoration, rather than as layered dots." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"This colour is amazing, just like the colour Wisteria, semi translucent. This colour blushes beautifully inside with a mystical and ethereal appearance, so easy to work too."
Juliette Mullett

"Wisteria is a lavender periwinkle opal. Much more vivid than Crocus, this clean glass is fresh and unique. The cupid kissed color has a subtle glow of magenta that would be perfect for floral sculptures. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing."
Heather Sellers

"Wisteria is an absolutely splendid colour - a vibrant light purple with a tinge of pink when the sunlight hits it. It melts perfectly; very smooth with no bubbles or shocking. I found that the longer I worked it, the more the misty opal effect happened. The spacers were literally heat, wrap, heat, round up, and into the kiln, and this no-faff fast working method has left the spacers way more transparent than the heart bead. The heart was hand-sculpted and took about twenty minutes of heating, shaping, reheating and reshaping and all the while its translucent milkiness developed. This effect remained after the heart was annealed. The photo was taken indoors in natural daylight." See more at Laura's tumblr.
