Purple Rain........... but lots of pretty purple flowers.  I have been busy making up some sets for my next few shows and of course a few for ............ Etsy shop. 
I of course had to make a couple of the double ones.  I just love the 3-D effect when you stack one of my smaller flowers on top of one of the larger ones.  As for rain a little of that might be nice right now because it might just cool it off a little.

Another batch of etched beads

 I have been working just not getting time to take pictures most days.  This is a very long strand of Etched amber and turquoise beads.  I put them all together to take a big picture but really think you can see them better when they are broken down into sets.
 I am going to list one set on Etsy this afternoon but then I have to restring the other sets to take to my next few shows.
 We leave for Stitches Midwest in Chicago the first week of August and then in September I am doing a couple of trunk shows.
I will be in WI and IL the later part of September so check back and I will tell you more about the trunk shows and the fabulous shops that are having the trunk shows.

Etching the morning away.

I spent over an hour this morning etching beads. I have a really large pile drying on the counter.  I even had to put the spoon in the picture so you could tell how big a pile it was.  A bunch of these are for special orders but there will be plenty left to list on Etsy.

Fiesta Daisy's

While on Facebook the other day Barbara Armstrong suggested that the poppy bead picture I had posted reminded her of Fiesta Daisy's.
I of course had to make some.  I just love how they came out and love the red and yellow together.  Maybe next week I will make something besides flower beads, but I do have so much fun making them it is hard to stop.

Suessology Bracelet

 The customer that bought my first Suessology necklace really wanted a bracelet to go with it.
 I have had the idea of what I wanted to do for a while but not being home I hadn't found the time.
She is a really great customer and knew it was going to take me a while.  After sending her pictures yesterday she says she loves it.  I know I really like how it came out.  It looks like a little sculpture.
