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.

    Love this necklace, Asia. You ventured out from the pastels. You put this together with such an eye for color combination. I absolutely love how you pulled the colors from the focal piece.

    Thanks everyone. I guess I needed some more “push” to get back into making jewelry. I don’t know how long I will keep the subscription but for now I do like the surprise box every month.

    Thank you for all your kind comments. This was the first piece I put together after my Dad died. I was glad to get back to work.

    Love the greens with the golds. These picks look fresh and springy. Love all the picks!
