Hi Everyone!
I have truly had an amazing career in Beading. Fifty years is creeping up on it and it has been amazing. Part of this life in bead and art is the incredible people I have met. Beading brings together like minds but from all walks of life, ages, backgrounds, cultures and then connects us in a way that nothing else has over the centuries. Yes, the computer age allows us to do this. But even before the PC I crossed paths with beaders from all over the world. One of these very talented people is 
Diana Grygo also know as "The Lone Beader"  
Diana captures the sights and pure essence of the scenes she beads. Her doggie broches are so much fun and a delight to all of those who make and wear them.
If you don't know this very nice lady, then allow me to introduce
Diana Gyrgo "The Lone Beader"

"The Lone Beader (aka. Diana L. Grygo) is  a self-taught bead embroidery artist currently working in Boston, MA. She loves to create extremely dimensional beaded paintings by stitching glass seed beads to felt. Her beadwork is inspired by dogs, classic cars, city scenes, and pop culture. Her pieces are a labour of love, requiring patience and perseverance. 
The Lone Beader's work has been published in both Beadwork and Bead & Button Magazines, the Bead International 2008 book, Australia's Creative Beading Magazine, Russia's Handmade Magazine, and most recently, a book called 
Mastering the Art of Embroidery by Sophie Long. Her work has been shown in juried exhibits & galleries across the country. The Lone Beader is also a juried member of the Cambridge Art Association in Cambridge, MA."
