Stones are Beads Too!

I have a story for you...

I was on Etsy tonight looking for some lampwork doggie beads for a friend who wants to make something special for her Mom who has 4 rat terriers. Cute, huh?!

Well, explain to me how I found THIS etsy site because I can't figure it out exactly. BUT, I couldn't pass it by without sharing since there was clearly some kind of inspired computer clicking involved!

Wow! From Lake Michigan, these stones are really amazing! I LOVE when people see such art and beauty in natural elements that others might just be walking on.

Check out ALLYBEANS on Etsy, there are lots and lots of cool and interesting nature made pieces.

Oh Lisa, if you're looking for lampwork dogs, you should totally check out Raida at Havana Beads. She makes the most adorable ones on keys. I sent her a pic of my ALL BLACK dog, and she still got her personality in the bead! Now I'm gonna head over to Etsy and check out that site. Have a great day!

Yes, Havana Beads has wonderful bead work. I've got a couple of her pieces featured in my 'Shop of the Day' Box on the top right of my blog.
But I LOVE stones. I have a tendency to work with them more than anything else. I'm checking out that site. Thanks.

I found this AMAZING lampwork artist with a dog bead collection. They're each worth a small fortune ( at least too me) but they are incredibly detailed! http://www.etsy.com/shop/JustDogs?section_id=8018722
