Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!

Personal

I’m a 57 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 have a new job! I start online training soon and then I will be back out in the field as a sales merchandiser!

I discovered Lima Beads in October 2012 & it was probably one of the best discoveries ever. If you are a regular here you know what I mean when I say this is more than an online bead store….more than a social networking site. It’s a generous family of people who share the same passion (obsession) for beads, who help & encourage each other everyday. LOVE THIS PLACE!!

I am the unintentional MacGyver & bargain beader. My goal is to show that you don’t necessarily HAVE to have expensive art beads, gemstones, SS, costly clasps to make an attractive piece of jewelry. I want to make affordable and wearable art. And have fun.

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 eveey way.

    Nancy Mc cracked me up! Its mine, mine, mine!!! LOL!

    You guys are so great….I appreciate the compliments so much. Becky….you remembered me saying I was working on this. Blast if the thing isn’t another necklace that does the neck crawl….sigh. I’m pretty sure switching the wood ring and bead clasp for a metal ring/toggle will fix it because it doesn’t slide much.

    That is so freaking cool!! The coral chips just pop….I actually thought they were hearts at first. Small phone screen…lol.

    Thank you for all your kind words. Aqua and brown is my favorite color combo. I have way too many pieces of jewelry this color!
    I love those little wood flowers also and bought 2 packages so expect to see them again…lol.

    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?
