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 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!

    Nice idea! The buttons look like colorful flowers adorning the leather strap. I like the crystal centers too. Sorry to hear about your hospital visit–glad you are feeling better! I find that beading and creating is the best therapy ever!

    The coral is beautiful. They definitely can stand alone in a design. Good idea having the back leather–heavy necklaces can be hard to wear for any length of time.

    A little Abacus–I love it! I like the addition of the white blossoms as they also look oriental. What a neat idea!

  • Crystal Canary commented on the Design “Violet Key”   23 hours, 50 minutes ago

    I’m glad the pictures finally came up! The key is lovely with all the DIFFERENT elements you added to it. I really like the butterfly in the middle and how you have hung it from two pieces of chain. Where did you find all these old vintage keys? Nice job!
