Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!

Personal

I’m Laudomia–married, one (mostly) grown son. We live in Chicagoland. A fanatical embroiderer and Renaissance costumer, I took up jewelry-making to use up supplies from those hobbies. I thought beading would be an inexpensive hobby! (Silly me.)

Please come visit at my Etsy shop!

    Beautiful pick! Wish I weren’t feeling fall, but I am. It’s coming–which means winter isn’t far behind. Sigh.

    Laud,
    I like the stringing chain for delicate designs and it works great. Only drawback is some less costly beads don’t have big enough holes. I stick to Czech beads.

    I know! I’m ashamed of my hoard, *hangs head* until I get a new idea and think how I don’t have the right size or shade of purple…and how I really need a delicate, carved, translucent stone…or…or–there’s no end to it.

    Haha to the cost of a beading hobby! I have literally an embarrassment of riches in what used to be my youngest son’s bedroom. But it could be worse, right?

    Well, if we must be addicted, at least this is a healthy one.
