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!

    What a great idea and combination! I like your use of the cubes and chain. I think your sister will adore it! If this is your first post to Lima–Welcome!

    I love the scrolls and crystals! With a little practice you will master this technique. I agree with Del, sometimes we can get carried away with the hammering–who doesn’t get over zealous with it sometimes?!

    Cool! A potted plant stake would be very nice; or maybe you can add some cording to hang from a window. This is great for those into music. I remember with fondness those wonderful days of playing instruments–not sure why I stopped. Either life got too busy, or I found beading!
