Sponsor Spotlight: Blue Seraphim

1. What are your current inspirations?
My current inspirations for creating glass beads are exploring with different shapes and color schemes through textiles....fabrics and papers with lavish palettes, patterns and textures

2. Describe your beadmaking studio and process.
My bead studio in my basement holds hundreds of glass rods in every color imaginable (although I am forever seeking out new color) plus a kiln, torch and tanks of oxygen and propane. The glass rod is melted in the flame and wound around a steel rod (to form the bead), different colors of glass can be applied in many ways to create designs and shapes. Once the glass has cooled slightly, it is then placed in a kiln to anneal for several hours.

3. Favorite color combination?
Right now, I am experimenting with spring colors and like the light greens, orange and pinks together.

I'm a big fan of her beautiful beads, though I don't always have the cash to spend on them. Lots of times I just browse and drool.
