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!

    Love how the lemon jade highlights the enamel birdhouse. How cute it is suspended from the log! Looks like the little copper bird is looking for the opening to climb on in! Precious idea!

    What a beautiful backdrop for the blue mountain bird! It must be hard to part with this charming necklace. Bless your heart for supporting the fund raiser with this beauty!

    I really like how the focal stands out on the teal leather cording. Love how you mixed the colors of the waxed linen for your dangles–it really adds visual interest thru the color use. Great idea!

    I like your mix of dangles against the warm hue of the copper. Nice job
