Jewel tone Daisy's

 Lovely, lovely jewel tone daisy's.  I have made these before but not in quite a while and I just had to get a few in my boxes. I love the watery feel of the transparent glass in these colors.
 I made mini ones this time too which I have to make more of because I just love the dainty little things.
 And some earring pairs for Etsy
 Of course the mixed sets are my favorite.
And I just had to show off this picture because I like the picture.

Choosy Chicks Choose.................

Chicklets blog hop is next weekend.  I finally got around to finishing up my project which I of course can not show you until August 3rd.  I did think maybe you would like to see  a little preview.  If you go to    you can read all about the challenge there.  We were each sent a lovely little Chicklet bead from Sue Beads   from the lovely hostess Rita at Toltec Jewels  I added a few light colored matching spacer beads and some metal beads and next weekend you can find out what I made.

Designer Molly Alexander............

.............has been making some new pieces with my beads.   Molly's designs are so fun and fresh I just love seeing what she does and then to see her use my beads in a piece just doubles the fun.  
You can see these pieces and others in her Etsy shop Miss Molly's Designs

A Variation......... color from the other day.  I for some reason have fall on my mind.  I know it is hot outside and that we are even having heat warnings because of the heat and humidity. (Amazing cold in the winter and hot in the summer.  There is no place like South Dakota.)
 I just have fall colors in my mind so I had to make up just a few of my favorite fall color combo into flowers.  I think they look like mums in this color. 
I will of course be listing some of them on Etsy,

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.
