Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


I’m a 60(crap)year old 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.

    Love this piece. Very earthy and serene. Picture jasper is such an gorgeous stone, it looks almost like a marbled wood. Love the dip dyed tassel….HOW????

    Yes but after you rotated it did you slightly crop and then save it as a new photo?

    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!
