Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!

Personal

I live in the Southwest with my hubby, dog, and birds. My first exposure to beading was 25 years ago when I purchased some thread and acrylic beads. Life got way too busy and the beads went into storage. Through a friend, my love for beading was renewed and out came all the supplies! Now I’m a certified beading ‘addict’ and you can’t imagine the supplies I now have! Hubby jokes about “the house foundation cracking because of the weight of all those stones!” I love to bead and especially love working with gemstones and deco Czech glass. I also enjoy creating a variety of styles and designs.

I am so happy to have found Lima Beads and all their great products, and all of you wonderful beaders out there! Thanks for all the inspiration you have given me!

    Really like your jumpring chain–nice and full! A fun mix of beads & colors too. Nice complement to the bracelets.

    The simplicity is nice with the coral branch focal. From the picture it looks like red leather–great choice. I agree, perfect for summer fun!

  • Crystal Canary commented on the Design “summer frost”   1 week ago

    What a fantastic fusion of color! I would also like to see this being worn. I love the happy, playful feel of this piece–so much fun! You did a great job in placing the colors in just the right places.

    I also wondered about the sharp ends. Thanks for the tip about using the wire rounder in this application. I have one, but didn’t think of using it here.

    Heh heh! I ❤️ Gems!
    I work on an IPad & the heart is an emoji that actually works on Lima comments. Most of them don’t. They just appear (or not appear) as a blank space. I was surprised when the heart worked. Are you familiar with emojis?

    Dear Friends,
    So much for peaceful, pleasant beading time…another emergency has confronted us, and I’ll be away for awhile. Needing some quiet time, but none in sight. Take Care everyone. Crystal

    Thanks for the note, CC! Did I mention that my hubby and me are watching DS9 now?!! We have a routine now that we eat dinner or lunch and watch an episode together. We first watched Babylon 5, then just finished ST Original series and finished the 3rd episode, 1st year of DS9!
    Sounds like we have alot in common! I also have been buying beading ”stuff” for a couple of years now. So much so, my hubby Mark put the brakes on me :( But it’s a good thing because now I can concentrate on actually making designs! I’m about to open an Etsy store. Just decided on my business name: JGB Rainbow Designs. That way I can include some dyeing in there too–fibers, scarves, whatever else I come up with.
    Gotta work on jewelry now!
