B.I.M.S. Bangles is a mother/daughter company based out of Tampa, Florida specializing in the creation and sales of artisan glass beads. The owner, Chelsea Pavloff, oversees the day-to-day operations of the company while raising her 4 daughters ... Britni, Isabella, Mackenzie, Sarah whose acronym became the company name B.I.M.S. Bangles.

For 6 years, Chelsea and Angie participated in Art Shows throughout Florida selling handmade artisan lampwork bead jewelry. Angie made the glass beads and Chelsea designed and fabricated the one of a kind jewelry pieces. However, as the girls grew, being away at art shows every weekend became too hard on everyone so we now make the glass beads and sell them to artists for use in their creations.

After 10 years at the torch, Angie Roberts specializes in lampwork bead sets and one of a kind focal beads. Each bead is made one at a time in the flame of a torch by melting Italian, German and American glass rods. Any decoration (ie. pure silver foil, silver glass, gold mesh) is applied to the bead while still IN THE FLAME! Then the bead is carefully laid into a kiln where it reaches stability and reduces temperature for approximately 8 hours. Once the beads are taken from the kiln, they are cleaned, inspected and listed for sale both on:
