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!

    Gorgeous work and composition! Really like your choice & mix of colors and beads with that yellow focal stone. Must also say that I love how you incorporated the Greek 2-strand spacers into this necklace and continued the two bead strands down and back up around the weaved work. Very unique design idea!

  • Crystal Canary commented on the Design “Dads Key Fob”   14 hours, 41 minutes ago

    Love this stylish key fob idea for men. No more misplacing those keys!

  • Crystal Canary commented on the Design “Mysterious”   14 hours, 45 minutes ago

    Isn’t it exciting when you find a treasure unexpectedly? That glass bead is stunning! Love how you combined the matte with the shine. Every section of this bracelet can stand on it’s own in beauty–and when combined together–Outstanding!! Love your work Kye

  • Crystal Canary commented on the Design “Tibetan Life”   14 hours, 53 minutes ago

    Donna, I just love the way you combined the Tibetan agate beads with the Czech ivory bicones–Perfect together! I’m with everyone else in liking the cultural feel of this design. The bead caps added to the front focal beads also adds that little extra ‘oomph’ that appeals to me. Beautiful work!

    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?

    Dear Friends,
    So much for peaceful, pleasant beading time…another emergency has confronted us, and I’ll be away for awhile. Needing some quiet time, but none in sight. Take Care everyone. Crystal

    Thanks for the note, CC! Did I mention that my hubby and me are watching DS9 now?!! We have a routine now that we eat dinner or lunch and watch an episode together. We first watched Babylon 5, then just finished ST Original series and finished the 3rd episode, 1st year of DS9!
    Sounds like we have alot in common! I also have been buying beading ”stuff” for a couple of years now. So much so, my hubby Mark put the brakes on me :( But it’s a good thing because now I can concentrate on actually making designs! I’m about to open an Etsy store. Just decided on my business name: JGB Rainbow Designs. That way I can include some dyeing in there too–fibers, scarves, whatever else I come up with.
    Gotta work on jewelry now!
