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!

    Wonderful necklace with a lot of movement and color! I purchased some of those recycled teardrops too–they are wonderful! You did a nice job incorporating them into this design. Very nice!

    Monica, where do you get the sheet metal? Can you just buy it at a store like Home Depot? I really love what you are creating here–these are fantastic–absolutely beautiful!

    Perfect for the necklace! I like the dark dangles on the bottom too
