Let me start off by saying I LOVE GlasstasticTreasures on ArtFire! You'll find some of the most awesome, whimsical, and beautiful handmade artisan lampwork beads for your jewelry creations, or just to collect as is! I've always been a big fan of lampwork beads. They can be so colorful and unique, and lampwork is one of the few things I don't make myself- LOL. Jamie says "Back in 2005 my friend talked me into taking a bead making class. I didn't want to at first, but the more I thought about it, the more fun it sounded!
I can't even explain how wonderful it felt to melt glass in a flame! Wow! My husband chuckled when I brought my little kit home and said it would never last. And 5 years later I'm still at it ;)
I started out with a little hot head torch, but today I use a dual fuel torch with propane and oxygen. I kiln anneal all beads for strength and durability! This will ensure years of enjoyment.I offer a 100% guarantee, because I know you'll love your beads!" She's even offering 10% off to everyone who reads her bio (plus there are some great pics to check out too). She has PAGES of satisfied customer's comments. Here's what just a few people have said "I LOVE my little bone pet charm! Gorgeous presentation, really nice seller and AWESOMELY fun beads in her shop. Fast shipping too. Can't say enuf nice things about my experience with fantastic GLASSTASTIC!", "Absolutely fabulous! Gorgeous beads arrived in perfect condition, even more amazing in person. A delightful seller to deal with! Thank you!", and "Perfect transaction, the pendant is spectacular and it arrived very quickly! I am sure that I will be getting loads of compliments when I wear this! Thank you so much!". I do believe I'm going to have to spend some time browsing- I'm sure I can come up with a good excuse to treat myself to some of her gorgeous artwork! And while I'm browsing I'll pick out a few of my favorites to share with you.
You can find GlasstasticTreasures online at Glasstastic Treasures, Plurk, her blog, Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, and IndiePublic. Now I think I'm off to do a little shopping ;-)
