Avonlea is described as "a bright green misty opal-same hue as shamrock"
Testing CiM Avonlea & Shamrock
These are like 2 peas from the same pod, but each with their own special personality!
Made with such a cheerful shade of green, Avonlea is a misty opal and Shamrock is an opal that stays translucent!! These new types of glass are exactly why CiM are so different from any other glass manufacturers out there. They bring us types of glass and colours that make our hearts sing!!
I'm a green girl and my Irish heritage (Doherty is an Irish name) draws me towards these colours , especially when one os called Shamrock!
"This is a green – a very green – misty opal. It’s so bright and springy! Again, no trouble with this one on the shocking front but I did have a bit of a bubbly rod. Nothing major and bubbly rods do happen [you can normally tell by holding the rod up to the light and checking for the telltale line/s inside that run along the length of it] but I just thought I’d say. I doubt all rods of Avonlea will have this; I guess it’s all dependent on if there was any air trapped in the original pull at the factory. [I’m guessing here: I don’t make glass – I just melt it.] The photo is Avonlea with CiM Dirty Martini." Read more at Laura's blog.
