This week: Design with Love and Save! Make Mom Happy AND Get 15% Back!
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!

    Love those soldered ear wires (and also the drops)–many benefits! I really like the lines in this design and the great polish on the silver.

  • Crystal Canary commented on the Design “Random Owl”   2 months ago

    Randomness can lead to exciting designs. Always love your metal work–and those bead caps are impressive. I really like how the side ‘petals’ come farther down the sides of the beads than usual caps–nice effect.

  • Crystal Canary commented on the Design “Inspired by Becky”   2 months ago

    The bright colors, beads, and focal make this a piece so much fun–and the added silk/linen intensify the upbeat design. Very clever use of the toggle component in the front. It’s great to be inspired.

    I really like the multi-strand layered design with the focal component of the birds nest actually off to the side. The howlite nuggets really add a flare of interest too. Very unique

    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!
