 As always it has been forever since I updated this blog.  These are some new daffodil style flower beads I have been playing with.

In the next 2 weeks I will be having online trunk shows or showcases in 2 different Facebook Groups. First up will be Artisans Open Market on August 19th and 20th. The following week will be Lampwork Bazaar on August 26th and 27th. You have to be a member of these groups to view the showcase and if you are not a member already I sure hope you will join and take a look at all the new beads I have been making. There will be a preview photo coming soon to the page.

Spring has sprung.

 Spring has sprung here in South Dakota.  We are finally having warm weather and some rain.  I made lots of pretty posies in lots of colors.
And some even have lots of colors all in one flower.

Long Focal Beads

I have not made long focal beads in a while.  I had so much fun playing with them for almost 2 days. These are all 2 inches long or longer.

New jewelry

 I do make jewelry once in a while.  I got these done in time to bring to Milwaukee.  I wanted to highlight this style of bead.
 Most of the time I make beads and when they are done I see a piece of jewelry in them, very seldom do I have the idea and then go make the beads as I did with this piece.
I of course had to make earrings to go with the necklace. And just like the Saturn beads yesterday these earrings would not play nice while having their photo made.

Saturn Beads

Saturn beads are just ornery when you want to take their picture.  They wiggle all over and will not lay nice and neat for the photo.
