Whooos the best?

I saw my sister Lauren today, and she gave me this beautiful owl bead she made....for no reason. It's not my birthday, it's not a holiday, I didn't have her over for dinner. What a nice surprise! Lauren has always been a great, generous sister, and she's a fabulous lampwork artist as well. You can check out her shop, Maybeads. Infact, if you want to see better pictures of her adorable critter beads (she has everything from owls to dogs, cats and turtles), you should definitely see her shop. Her husband takes professional photos of her beads. I had trouble getting a good shot of the intricate details with my small camera. This picture really doesn't do her work justice. THANKS LAUREN!!

Since I'm working on animals for my own shop, I might try owls next! In the meantime, here's a sneak peek at the turtle I'm working on now. Meet Scooter (named by my daughter Samantha).


  1. Thank you Rachel! I'm so glad you like it! I LOVE Scooter! Great

  2. Haha it's me using bob's iPod. Thanks Rach! Lauren

  3. That owl is soooo cute. I love scooter too.

  4. I love your art and the way you get inspired.
