This week's Circular: The Vault and a Sale on Artist Beads
Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


hello i have been beading for about year but have collected beads since i was seven years old. i am desperately trying to build my customer base so i can have something to fall back on as my employer “downsizes” just about everyday now. i do home parties and so far have been what i consider to be successful. i have been following the beaders on lima for awhile and am just impressed with both the talent and the spirit of all. i am married and we have four teenage children between us. they all help with the beading-some sort, some string and well my sons throw in a “good job” every once in awhile to keep me going! i also enjoy going to thrift shops and attending football games at the schools our children attend.

    Hi Shelly, I have not been active for a while on limabeads site, so did not see your request. Both of you Shelly’s say your jewelry is selling well. I sell a bit, but need to be selling more. What are your secrets?
    We love to watch the Texas Longhorn football games. My husband and I have one adult son who comes over to watch them with us. We make it a fun day.

    thanks for accepting my request. i am finding that i am able to sell a bit of my pieces, i am kind of surprised that people still are buying luxuries in this economy. i expect any day to be laid off from my job. i am lucky as my husband has a pretty secure job, thank goodness. i really enjoy the football games-my oldest just started college and is considering trying to walk on fb team there, my youngest is a full back. same name!! how neat!!

    Hi Shelly..I’m Shelley! I started beading as a hobby as well, and have found it supplements our income nicely. Our son played football for many years and graduated HS 2 years..miss those football games terribly :) I’d love to see some of your designs!
