Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


I’m a mum of a girl and a boy, born in 2003 and 2005, and have a very supportive husband. I work in a microbiology laboratory in Northern Europe (yet another of those lab people going creative!), and love to do gardening, so really, I shouldn’t have time to do jewelry as well! That’s why I’ve only been reading this blog for a while, thinking that I can’t possibly find the time to contribute. But the jewelry is taking over more and more of my time, and is giving me so much positive energy! Some time ago I decided to start selling locally, which has been an interesting experience, it also gave me the courage to tell people I do commissions.
Most of the courage to do this I found here! I find myself returning to this blog time and again, to get inspiration, learn new things, and just feel the positive atmosphere.

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Who Remembers?”   5 days, 4 hours ago

    I’ve got some really big wooden beads in my stash, because someone once asked if I had, and then I didn’t have, yet. So of course, one’s got to be prepared, just in case another request turns up… Nope, never actually made a design like this with them, and I don’t have a single pic of [...]
