I'm publishing these pictures for your and my enjoyment today, since today's studio stint produced less than thrilling work.  Beads popped, went lopsided and generally weren't cooperating.  I'll give it to myself for hanging in there for the hour I put aside to make beads.  Practice, practice, practice.

That last piece is raw kyantie set in  borosilicate glass to make a focal.  Very nice, yes?

10 focals. 3 hollow.6 flat. 1 boro w qtr  3 seahorses w qtr

Goddess bead Kyanite and boro focal thought for the day:    Errors are compost for success.  Even with this understanding, you may wonder how to be with discouragement and even desperation without being defined by them…Breathe.  There is no situation that is improved by holding your breath.  If it feels right, you might notice how effortlessly you are supported in the simple and involuntary act of breathing.  (If you are as cranky as I sometimes am, it may not work to think a happy thought, so don't.)…Hold yourself and your concerns gently and compassionately asking for grace to heal, to see more clearly, to fogive yourself and others, to release the past, to discern next steps.  Finally be patient.  Patience is the challenge and the key to being with and moving…Be as patient as you can be, and be compassionate with yourself for being only as patient as your are.  Molly Gordon, The Way of the Accidental Entrepreneur

    Tammy, this is a lovely website. The thought for the day from Molly Gordon's book is wonderful. I copied it and put it on my frig to look at daily as a reminder.
    You have such a wonderful talent and I am sure the pictures do not do it justice since it so dimensional. I liked the idea of putting a quarter next to some pieces to give one the sense of size.
    Great ideas.
