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.

    Thank you all for your support. At least he got to have a longer life than anyone had expected, and had a quick end without much suffering, we all are grateful for that. And thank you for the praise, that warms! A Rozmin: I’ve done it both ways, but I prefer to stain before I add [...]

    They are SO pretty! I really have to try posting some of my new earrings, I just haven’t felt able to cope with much net activity in the last few weeks, but now it feels a bit better.
