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!

    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?
