Purple Rain...........

............no 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 ............
 ...........my Etsy shop.  https://www.etsy.com/shop/tanyamcguire 
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. https://www.etsy.com/shop/tanyamcguire

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.
