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!

What a wonderful necklace using those rich, purple slabs! The addition of the spikes adds some extra depth to the design and plays well with the irregular shape of the slabs. Your ‘stone wear’ line will be very appealing to those who just love that natural vibe with an upscale look.
So delighted to see a design using the Nepalese cane beads. The burst of color in these beauties reflects nicely in your design. I like how the green was picked up and used in the back with the recycled glass. The wood rounds also add a nice natural touch to the handmade canes.
Love how you incorporated the flower & leaves into this design–the maple leaves are perfect with the focal motif. Nice touch with the brass filigree wrapped around the wooden pendant too. I always enjoy the photo inspirations your husband picks for your challenges.
