Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


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 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!

    FB, this is great! I love the leather work you did on this one! It emulates the browns of the seaweed/flora wrapping all around in the illustration by Dulac nicely. Your piece has good balance and I love the underwater feel–especially that PC/cab pendant! Wonderfully done!

    These are all so much fun–great variety and choices. A little something for everyone! I am sure your show will be a great success. Love how you created the ‘focal bars’
