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!

    Beautiful etching! The layered effect adds interest and an extra element of design to the piece. Nice work Sarajo

  • Crystal Canary commented on the Design “Flight of the Monarch”   3 hours, 24 minutes ago

    Perfect choice to place your handmade butterfly focal atop the filigree piece–it showcases it wonderfully. Love the bolder colors too. You’ve been on a roll of inspiration!

  • Crystal Canary commented on the Design “Donut del Sol”   3 hours, 29 minutes ago

    Nice necklace! I really like the linked work paired with the smooth surface of the donut focal. And I think the riveted leather bail was a great idea. I’m lovin’ all these donut ideas–I still have a case full if them to use!

  • Crystal Canary commented on the Design “Dzi Bead Bracelet”   23 hours, 32 minutes ago

    After I posted my comment, the picture changed! The basket really highlights the rich colors of the piece over the darker surface of the previous photo. Good change to emphasize the attributes of the bracelet.

    I keep trying, but life just keeps throwing things at us. Our new one is trying to get her eating on her own and get some kidney functions closer to normal and not affect her enlarged heart. Both Chiquita and I are fighters and together we’re a force to be reckoned with, so that keeps the morale up.

    Yes, that is my furbaby Chiquita two or three year ago. She was sitting on my mom’s lap while I hung azalea garland above our garden room windows and sliding patio door. She loved sitting on mom’s lap when mom was at home with us.

    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?
