Orrefors Crystal love…

I cannot say how much I love Orrefors beautiful crystal collections, sold online here in the U.S.  The hand-blown crystal is produced in Sweden with exquisite time-honored methods. True artisans created these incredible works which are in demand around the world.

Orrefors Avanti Stemware collection…

A great gift idea, the Orrefors Meteor Clock…

The Nova II vase in red…another smashing idea…

Love the soft color combination in this Soft Spot Vase in pink/lilac…

Saw this mentioned as a great hostess gift, Orrefors Tornado Crystal Votive designed by artisan Jan Johansson, creator of the Tornado and Tornado Edge Collections.  His artistic quotes follow:

“Crystal possesses a sensual, vital strength…”

“…I try to find the soul of the crystal, its innermost expression…”
