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!

    I would love to make my own components and beads–you’re off to a great start! I can’t imagine how fun and satisfying it must be. Keep up the great work–can’t wait to see some more!

    Angela, sorry I’m so late with my comment! I love what you did with the uno dangles!! They look fantastic in this design! They create such a ‘flirtly’ look with all the movement and swing. I can see that it was a lot of work wrapping them–I bet your fingers were sore after that! Great work!

    So very cool!! I just love the chain maille weave! Great contrast against the pearls and onyx.
