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!

    This is so dramatic! What a stunning piece!

    Nunn’s charms drew my attention right away. I really like how you are using them in your bracelets. I like this design as it has a Native American vibe with the red-ish seed bead additions.

    Leather as a fob is an ideal choice–there’s something about touching leather that I love (especially as it starts to wear.) The riveted piece and the addition of the charms are perfect!

    She will ABSOLUTELY ADORE it! I especially like how you incorporated the green wood chip beads into the design. Also love the ceramic and dark wood combo. I know she’ll really like this most thoughtful gift–I’m crazy over it!!

    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!
