I don't often get to see what other people do with my beads. Yesterday though Betsy Gardner sent me an email with this picture of how she had used my beads in her necklace which is a gift for a friend. She said I could show you how nice it turned out. More and more I am seeing seed beads combined with lampwork and boy do I like it. I think Betsy's friend is very lucky.

Thanks for letting me show it off Betsy.

Hi again! It is getting late but I did just get a few new focals added to my focals page on my web site. Just click on the link to the right.
Good morning! I just added this bead to Etsy and it has lots of views if you want to see the back side of it just click on the Etsy link to the right. I will be adding lots of focal beads to the website this afternoon but this morning I am headed to the barn to make new beads. So check back later. And have a great Saturday!

Good afternoon! Guess I have been in a very purple mood lately I have made lots of purple beads that is for sure. This is just a color combination I like a lot, partially because the opaque purple does the swallowing thing making it almost two colors. I really liked this tube shaped bead with it's raking once I finished it and the little twists of the one below make me think of paisley. Have a great weekend.

With all the time I have been spending on the Internet and the computer for the last two weeks you would think that I could at least update the blog more often. Problem is I have been having trouble getting all of it done. I did get three necklaces made with my new flowers yesterday. I kind of like them really simple with sliding knots so you can wear it long or short. Well I am off to work at updating the web site once again. Have a fun night.

Oh! Oh! Oh! I was so excited yesterday and I could not tell you for fear I was wrong but hey I was right this is an awesome new color of glass called Avocado Marble. It does not look avocado to me but it sure is yummy! One very long bead made with the Avocado Marble and Sage end caps.
And a nice big lentil just using the Avocado Marble. Yummy!

Hi! I have been on the computer all day today. I have been adding things to my website www.tanyamcguire and to my Etsy site. This dragonfly pendant is just one of several I added to the Necklace page. I am really tired from all this real work I think that tomorrow I will just have to go make beads instead.

Hi sorry to be missing in action. I have been really busy with updating the web site and listing things on Etsy. It is amazing how much time it takes getting pictures ready for the Internet. I have also been making beads. I got these done a couple of days ago. I am thinking the big hole ones would be really cool for necklaces and they are all bright for a pick-me-up for a chilly fall day.
And these very Mod looking ones were an experiment and I really like them, they are very retro. Think 60's POP!

Hi something new. I have not gotten the findings epoxied to the back yet but I wanted to show you the new little bead tops I have been making so I can make post earrings. They are lots of fun to make so I am sure I will be making more. I put the post part into the picture so you could see just how small these are.

Hi, today I have something to show you that was made by a customer of mine. I have been making the pendant pieces for about a month now and have yet to get some photographed to put a picture up. So..........when Sonja form Sasha's Beads and Toggles http://www.beadsandtoggles.citymax.com/home.html sent me some pictures of what she made with them I just had to show you. She even used some of my spiky things to dangle in the middle of a few of them. I really think they are neat.
