Personal

I live in the Southwest with my hubby, dog, and birds. My first exposure to beading was almost 30 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!

    What a super necklace! That was a fantastic pick, and it is nice to see a piece made from it. So cool how it fell together–isn’t it great when that happens?! The flow of color from bottom to top has my eyes all over it. Great work!

    Lovely work–You did a fantastic job! I really like the pearl in the center. It’s nice that the flower could be kept as a keepsake to remember the occasion. A handmade item from those we love is always something special.

    Oh, Kye, what a fantastic gift for your mother! The fabric bead is absolutely wonderful, and I just love how you added seeds to it. She’ll love the thoughtfulness in using the material scraps she gave you. Often it can take some time to learn something new, but next time around I’m sure it won’t be [...]

    Absolutely lovely! You have pulled out all the colors from the Grace Lampwork heart in a magnificent way.

    Crystal, your bracelet is the perfect piece to help you heal! Just your eyes toward the sky. When my brother died, my mom was having a very hard time. On the way home she begged God to show her if my bro was with him. There had been a big storm in the Brownsville that day, but God sent a double rainbow for her. I am doing better about my fur baby, but was having a rough day missing her Friday. I went to dinner with a friend. On the way home there was a perfectly complete rainbow. That told me she was with God and doing well. :-D It brought a smile through watery tearfilled eyes.

    Thank you for your message! I still sense her presence at times and getting fewer each day. I picked up her ashes on Monday after dropping off some medicine Mom needed. They are still in the cardboard box. I got sick the day after I put her down. I went to the doc yesterday. I think I waited too long. I got a big shot of prednisone and take huge doses for the next 10 days. Hopefully the allergy and sinus infection will clear up soon. I have seen mom since the 5th.

    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.
