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!

    The earrings will be wonderful gifts and everyone will love them! I really like the shimmer in the clay on the bracelet bars. I especially like the color combo of the last one with the copper/rust vines atop the blue & gold background. Very nice!

    Monica, I love the fact that you made those bone discs from leftovers. Your hard work definitely paid off as they turned out great. As for your necklace, it is fantastic! The silk and strand with the chunky pebbles creates a variety of textures, and the addition of your ‘tendrils’ puts this necklace over the top! [...]

    I agree, the sterling silver has truly brought out the beauty of the turquoise beads. You did a find job restringing it.
