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!

    Awesome display of the Silver Leaf Jasper faceted drops! I’m having bead envy! Stunning…absolutely Stunning!

  • Crystal Canary commented on the Design “Baby Blues”   1 month, 4 weeks ago

    Nice idea–kinda like a ‘small’ take on the ladder necklace. Love the fringe on the bottom. The bracelet looks great with those light blue rondelles and spacers–perfect companion for the necklace. Great set

  • Crystal Canary commented on the Design “Earth Tones..”   1 month, 4 weeks ago

    I always admire your paper beads and think they are lovely in your designs. I like how you used the Czech coin beads in all three pieces and as focal points. Love the knotted style too, so flexible and feels great on.

    Gorgeous work! All of your pieces show your passion for creating beauty and showcasing your talent. Each is a work of art in itself. This is a beautiful necklace and I love how you incorporated the ammonite cabochons into the design.

    Dear Lima Friends,
    Things have been very distressing the last couple months; and we just lost my father. Won’t be around for a while. But when I can, I will stop in and admire all of your wonderful designs. Take Care–Crystal

    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!
