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.

    Maybe, maybe not… maybe they’re just the wrong color? Put a more neutral color that matches the wire (some golden(lined) Toho maybe), to give more room for those ceramic beads to shine.

    Hmmm, interesting! For me, the first one just has too many focals. That wonderful slab in the middle would need subdued company to pop (OK, remember, I’m rather minimalist!). The donuts and the metal beads might actually work together, and with those brown too, their colors match. The second design also has a problem with clashing [...]

    You might learn to finish them by yourself eventually — but your mom needs some fun too, so no hurry… I just LOVE these, especially the first, third (half crescents) …and fourth pair… The color of the first, my fave earring shape of the second, and the personal wire work on the fourth!

    These are all stunning! I also love the last ones, but the second are special too, with those magatama loops!
