Announcement   I am ready to settle back in and start creating again after working so hard on my home with updates and repairs to prepare to sell so I can downsize and retire. Well, the plan isn't working. We started looking and we can't find one we like for the price we want. So, after all the work and time we have put into this home we have decided to stay here and enjoy all the updates we have done. Thanks for waiting! :o)

Yes, it is still me ( Cabaribeads)! Over the years there has been a lot of confusion on how to spell and pronounce my old shop name so I have gone to a simpler name for everyone's ease. Including mine. LOL! Miya is another spelling of Maya which was already taken. It is the name of the goddess of beauty and wealth. So, hopefully I will bring you wealth with the designs you make with my beads. I do hope you find some beads you think are beautiful. Lol.

I have been busy finishing up orders and have found an old love - ceramics. I am working on a group of ceramic pendants and have some new etched copper designs in mind, too.Thanks.

And check out my blog: http://pattymillerbeads.blogspot.com for photos about what's new. Thanks for stopping by.

To make glass beads I melt a 6mm glass rod in my torch flame to a molten stage. Then different techniques are used to form and decorate each bead with care to maintaining proper heat throughout the bead during the whole process so it doesn't crack as you work on it. The finished piece rests in a kiln over several hours until it slowly cools down and is properly annealed.
I hope you will find beauty in my beads and etched copper pieces to make your wonderful jewelry designs.

About

The Joy of My Life

My name is Patricia Miller and I have always enjoyed being creative. When my daughter was young I made her clothes, I studied ceramics in school, metal working and later jewelry design. Believe it or not, I cannot remember why I began stringing beads after work 20 years ago. But it has evolved over time with me learning many art mediums. Metal working, copper etching, pmc, lampworking (making glass beads), wire working, seed bead work, etc. I truly love free form peyote and celini spiral. I make the components for my jewelry designs and offer them in my shop to other designers.

I am a mixed media artist from the Knoxville area in TN though originally from Upstate New York. I have designed jewelry for 20 years with care to size,shape and texture of the beads to make each piece perfect.Twelve years ago a friend introduced me to lampworking (bead making). It has been true love ever since so now I melt glass and make the beads I use in my designs!
My beads are handcrafted one-by-one in my home studio, are kiln annealed and always carefully cleaned to ensure you enjoy your purchase for years to come.
So, come on over to my shop and see what's cookin' today!
