Earthy Chic Jewelry-Lampwork Beads-Components

MiyaBeads is taking a short break.

Well, my beloved Jessie dog recovered from kidney failure by a miracle due to lots of prayer and good energy sent her way. But now I am working on my house to sell it so I can downsize in preparation for retirement. When that is finished and all is settled I will reopen with new beads and copper etchings. I also have been working on some ceramic pieces for jewelry as well as polymer clay beads. Oh, my gosh! I just love it all! Thanks to all who enjoy my work. <3 Patty.
I hope you will come back to see what I have to offer.

MiyaBeads' Shop Announcement

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 beautiful beads. I do hope you find some beads you think are beautiful. Lol.
Another spelling of this name Maia is mainly remembered today as the goddess of spring and rebirth, like the month of May that bears her name. "Maia" means "the maker," and every spring she makes the lush green grass and the fragrant flowers grow again. I am an avid gardener so I love that meaning, too. Thanks

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. In a bit I will be adding some exciting ceramic pendants and new etched copper designs - a round tree of life pendant, several Egyptian designs, 1" sugar skulls, etched copper feathers, etc. Keep your eyes open for them!Thanks.

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

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.The finished piece rests in a kiln over several hours until cooled down and properly annealed.

I also do the etching and patinas on all of my copper designs that I offer.
Here you will find beautiful beads and etched copper pieces to make your wonderful jewelry designs.
