This week's Circular: The Vault and a Sale on Artist Beads
Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


I’m a 59 year single/divorced woman living in a town full of 20-25 year old single marines. So-o-o no social life at all. I am a full-time sales merchandising rep for a major company. I work in a different town/store every day.

I discovered Lima Beads in October 2012 through a link on Pinterest. Best discovery ever.

Just wanted to add. The kitten I use as my photo is my baby Mousey that I raised with a bottle the summer of 2012. He’s a big boy now but he was so so tiny with those huge eyes. He loves beads too haha. He’s my baby in every way.

    I saw your necklace on the Art Bead Scene blog, the Perfect Pairing this past week. Nice advertisement for your business and exceptional compliment to your craftsmanship. Your handmade components really set your jewelry apart and raise the bar for any competitors. Absolutely love the colors on this necklace, your combinations are as usual beautiful and [...]

    This just jumped off the page at me. Very nicely done…and you say you’re new to.beading??!!? I could not tell. I haven’t picked up a Bead Style mag in while so I am unfamiliar with your inspiration. Really love the pendant.

    I think the reason the rest if the components are not listed is that they are no longer in stock or no longer available at Lima Beads. Yoi can go to.the actual Vintaj page to get a better idea of what was used.

    Hey you! Thanks for the wire post! It reminded me to change my number of grandkids to 3. :) I just reread your profile, too. You updated that, too, didn’t you? This place IS the best and all of you I have met here are my bestest buds! Hang in there, sister. I am sure you will find your place to shine.

    Jump rings, crimps, beading wire and tiny beads are the bane of my existence. Big stuff on string from now on! JK.

    I’m pretty happy today. Everyone loved the jewelry I gave them for Christmas. My Mom was especially pleased. Kept saying the set was beautiful and that she had never seen anything like it.

    Had serious Lima Beads withdrawal all dayl yesterday since I could not get on anything but the home page.

    Feel dumb because I didn’t realize my Santa Belt was POD Christmas Eve. Oh well.

    Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

    Gaaaa! Why do jump rings, headpins and seed beads have to be so annoying?
