Shiny metallic spirals.

We are in Hopkins setting up for the show this weekend.  Please do try to come and see us.  We will be in the back by the stage again.  I know some of you missed us last fall but we have out old spot back.  Here is a link to the show website if you would like more information.  http://www.beadsbydee.com/Bazaar/bazaar.html   And look shiny metallic spirals. I am bringing a few sets of these and I think they are way prettier in person.

And then there was etching.

 Of course some of the beads from yesterday had to be etched. I love the way they almost seem to glow. These are all the little Saturn style beads I make and use so much of the time.
I so love the pale amber and black together.

New Etched Flower beads

While we were in Tucson I had the necklace I showed off a few months ago on display (You can see it here : http://tanyamcguire.blogspot.com/2015/01/a-new-necklace.html ). everyone wanted to know where those flowers were and I had used them pretty much all up for the necklace so I decided I had better get a batch made for the spring shows. Lots of nice soft etched colors.

Getting ready for the next few shows.

We are getting ready for my next couple of shows and I have been busy. I made some of these metallic glass wrapped beads right before going to Tucson and I have been playing with some new colors and making some more of the blue ones. This coming weekend we will be in Hopkins MN just outside of Minneapolis at the Twin Cities Bead Bazaar.
