    I know what you mean, Dawn — I just love lampwork beads, but there is something special about the etched ones! :D One artist told me she etches some of hers to give them a more organic look.

    I think etching can be tricky it can make or break the piece if you know what I mean. I have seen some etched organic beads and some are gorgeous and others leave me hohum.
