Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!

Personal

Hi! My name is Maria. I live with my hubby in Queens, NYC. I’ve taught in the NYC school system for over 25 years and finally retired this year! I enjoy gardening; reading; Mr. Darcy and anything Italian!
I started beading about a year ago when I offered to fix the broken clasp on my friend’s necklace. Online, I found helpful tutorials that started me on my beading “career”. I was not prepared for the addiction that comes with this hobby! At LimaBeads I have discovered a wonderful network of talented beaders who are supportive and encouraging. You guys are my inspiration!

    I’ve been trying to send a private message, but it won’t go through.
    Are thinking about going to the Whole Bead Show in a few weeks?
