Hello. My name is Caryn. I live in upstate New York with my husband and daughter. I have been beading for a few months now and was exited to find Lima Beads. You have all given me so much great feedback and inspiration. Thank you!!

    I love this. The Colors pop and I’m pretty sure I have the exact same components in my stash. Thank you for giving me some ideas with the green glass. I’m constantly thinking I need to have them in groups of three. I like what you’ve done here!

    Oops where did by description go? Anyway, yes I made the chain. I’ve been so into chainmaille lately. It isn’t on the cover but it is in the October issue. I learned this weave( I forget what weave it is) from a magazine and its the hardest one I’ve made to date.

    Does anyone know where to get affordable bobby pins..the kind where I can glue on a boy or other item? I have a request but I don’t really want to start anything ”new”, not interested in making a bunch.

    Well…Bead Trends is amazing. I called them wondering when I should expect my free copies and my necklace. He said they don’t send them out until the middle of the month. I asked him where I could find a copy near me. He called me back within a few minutes and said he would give me a free online copy of the magazine. It gets better…They gave me a copy of every single BT since 2008!!! Wow now that is service!!! Hats off to Northridge Publishing!

    I have an earring class and a show this weekend. I feel so unprepared. I go through this before every show. Does everyone else feel the same way when you have a show coming up?

    I’m still waiting for my copies of Bead Trends. Am I the only one that hasn’t got it yet?

    I am so frustrated. I have my things posted on 3 different sites but I can’t seem to sell a thing! I even started posting findings and beads on Etsy. It seems like the less I sell the more I buy!

    I haven’t had any luck on my website and I’m really bummed. I am not selling but I keep buying. I figured I should try to sell unused findings and beads. I posted them on my other site at

    Frantically getting my necklace ready to send to Bead Trends. I am not good at writing the directions. I guess I better get myself in gear to get it done this weekend. It has to go out first thing Monday morning. Anyone have any tips for writing the directions? And also if you don’t know what line your components come from what do you say? I usually say they are from a bead swap. I just have no confidence when it comes to this part of the creating. HELP!
