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.

    Beautiful sunset! They are nearly the same everywhere — but not quite! I was lazy yesterday not converting the Celsius, and I certainly don’t do it in my head either! Inches and feet to centimetres I can do roughly, but the F is totally strange to me.

    We are outside as much as we can in summer [...]

    Thanks again!! It is not hanging on the wall yet, but hoping it will soon — the hubby was contemplating that (that’s his department…), he was actually mightily impressed, and told that I absolutely had to post it! And another good thing: I could easily take it to fairs and shows, it could stand alone with [...]

    Heee…! But think how much THEY save on jewelry :-O! The self promotion bit is familiar too…
