Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


My name is Donna and I am from West Chester, Ohio a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio. I am retired. I found this site in 2012. I retired in May 0f 2013. But, I just have started to be able to design and make jewelry. Like most of you, I have elderly parents that drained me of my creative spirit. Now, my Mother, who is almost 90, is in a long term facility. So, the time has finally come to make some jewelry. I aspire to hone this craft and find my focus in designing. I would love to have a shop on Etsy like most of you. This site and all of you help me every day to make my life transition. Thanks to you all.

    Mahala, Your pictures are just so perfect. They highlight your necklace perfectly. Plus, your necklace has all my favorite colors. Beautiful!

  • Poms Forever aka Donna commented on the Design “I took a Class”   2 days, 7 hours ago

    This necklace looks very complex for a beginner. But, you did a great job for the first time. I would make another piece using these techniques so you can develop the skills. You would be one great designer! I don’t know the lady who taught you the class, but I would love to learn her techniques! [...]

    Hi Donna. We must be soul mates when it comes to dogs in need. We adopted Dixie from the Corgi rescue, and it turned out she was positive for heartworms! $800 later she is healthy and happy, and a joy in our lives! Ihope you are enjoying your new hobby, and that you do well at the craft fairs coming up. I would like to do the same as you, but need a bigger stash, and to get more info on starting a business. You have some very pretty picks out there. Congrats on POD today! Thanks for being a friend! Susie
