What can I say...the Lady made my day:)..I am so grateful and humbled to see how satisfied she really is....(happy dance)
"I don't wear gold ever.It doesn't suit me. Well, that's what I've been saying for YEARS. And then these arrived. I bought them because I liked the beads, and I thought I could use the beads for something else if push came to shove. But I am NOT going to do that. The gold DOESN'T make me look jaundiced, and I LOVE these flat hoops. They hang really nicely and are easy to wear. I may have been converted... ;-)" -Lady.Bracknell, United Kingdom
I experimented with the wonderful art of Borosillicate Glasswork beads...and Hypoallergenic earwires. I created these simple designs as a test....so of course when Lady purchased these pairs, excited and nervous was an understatement....but to my delight she had this to say:
"I always expect glass earrings to be dragging on my piercings after a while but these - and the azure ones - just DON'T. Either borosolicate is lighter than standard glass - which seems rather unlikely - or Andrea's handmade earwires are so well-balanced that they negate the weight. Super earrings: artsy, but neat and relatively unflamboyant for the office". -Lady.Bracknell, United Kingdom.
thank you My Lady:)
So....who is the creative genius behind the awesome boro beads..Glassgypsy.etsy.com...
"My name is Jim, and I am a glass addict :). My journey with glass started many years ago, with cold glass. Soon I moved to sand blasting, then onto fusing and slumping. Next was lampworking, and some limited furnace work."-Jim Kuderna.
Jim is a great great guy to work with, one of the sweetest, funniest Etsy men that I have ever met. He truly has a talent that is amazing...his creativity inspires me to learn the art of glasswork, I have designed some of the most beautiful jewelry pieces I have ever made with Jim's beautiful beads. If you want to experience boro beads for yourself and met a very cool, professional Etsian who loves what he does and loves his customers the same....visit http://glassgypsy.etsy.com
