There's Still time to shop and so many Stores!

Our next stop on our "Glass Tour" of Etsy is Seraphim Flameworks, Artisan Lampwork Beads. Make a visit to this store, and you will end up drooling at the fantastic beads you see listed there. There are pandora beads, focals, and beads for dreds. Let's take a quick look at what they have. Oh, and when you are finished with their store, visit their blog. They have set up a wonderful blog with much helpful information about glass, beads, and, in particular, silver glass.

These large hole raku nuggets are some of my favorite beads currently in the Seraphim Etsy store. They are rich and earthy. As you can see, they are full of texture. They would be beautiful on a biagi bracelet or strung from a chain to wear around your neck.

This bead, again, is earthy and rich with texture. It is an extra large hole bead. It has a very masculine feel to me, and it might make a great gift for that man in your life.

This focal is, again, full of rich earthy colors and a great deal of texture. Can you imagine the feel of this bead worn as a pendant around your neck? I love the deep red color, too!

Now, I have saved the best for last. Look at the vibrant colors in this bead--the turquoise, the silvered ivory, the pink! The pink? Yes, the pink. Being "pinkinistic" at heart, I have to declare this bead as my ultimate favorite on the Seraphim site. Don't take my word for it, visit Seraphim's store. It will be a trip worth your time.

Way cool feature Ms M!
Seraphim's work just rocks, totally droolworthy & even better in hand!

There is still certainly time to shop. especially for all of the lucky duckies that live Stateside ;o)

I think droolworthy is a great adjective to describe the work from that studio! I'm sure everyone will agree.

You know what comes to mind every time I see a Seraphim bead pic?

"Angelic. Truly must be made by angels/seraphim."

Terrific tour of their shop you've given us, Mallory :)

Thank you for the wonderful writeup about Seraphim, my Pinkinistic Sweetheart! And thank you, Deb, Angie and Kim for your wonderful comments as well :)

I have enjoyed watching you blossom into quite an adventurous beadmaker, Mallory! I am bold enough to claim a minuscule part in your evolving style and skill but even more indebted to you for showing me 'My feminine, pink side.'

Blessings to you, Mallory The Pink!
